feature-length drama, Latvia
Set in Riga’s blossoming electronic dance music scene and and based on true-life encounters, Rave is a techno-infused drama chronicling the relationships, experiences and problems of Latvian contemporary underground youth. After her parents get divorced, young artist Laine (21) has to practically take over being mom for her baby brother while attempting to juggle work, university and drugged up weekend parties at local underground raves. Laine’s life gets turned upside down when she falls for Gunda (22), a seasoned raver, and begins to question her sexuality and identity at a time when her family is falling apart. Laine finds her escape in the drugs, clubs, festivals and afterparties as she struggles to hold together her dissolving relationship with reality.
