Screening of the Movie ‘Soviet Milk’

Earlier in April Latvian Culture Center of Colorado and Colorado Chapter of Latvian American Chamber of Commerce hosted the author Nora Iksena and producer Inara Kolmane for a private screening of the award-nominated Latvian movie ‘Soviet Milk’ in the prestigious Sie FilmCenter Denver. Ms. Iksena and Ms. Kolmane shared their perspectives and behind-the-scenes insights with us. Their presence truly made the event unforgettable!

With around 90 attendees, it was an evening filled with thought-provoking discussions and a deep dive into the themes and inspirations behind the film.

A big thank you to all who came out to support Latvian cinema and engage in meaningful dialogue. Stay tuned for more exciting events coming your way!
