MOTHER, I LOVE YOU [Mammu, es Tevi mīlu]
2013 Oscar Selection, Latvia

His doctor mother works long hours, so Riga kid Raimonds has free rein to ride his scooter around the city, and get into mischief with his pal, whose housecleaner mom has keys to a swanky apartment that the two boys like to explore. What begins as childish tomfoolery spirals into a more serious problem, with Raimonds soon learning a hard lesson about the complexities of the adult world, family and friendship. The vivid, dynamic cinematography is by AFI alumnus Tobias Datum (SMASHED, TERRI, AMREEKA, I'M GONNA EXPLODE). Best Dramatic Feature, 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival; Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury, 2013 Berlin Film Festival.
