In February, the new feature-length puppet animation “Lielais Indriķis” from the film studio “Animācijas brigāde” will premiere. The duration of the film is 75 minutes, about 150 new dolls were created during the making of the film, and the creative team worked on the making of the film for more than two years.

The plot of the film is based on the book “Wild Pies and Great Indriķis” by the head of the film studio Māras Putniņas, based on a story about patriotism and love for one’s homeland. “Lielais Indriķis” is the first feature film of “Animation Brigades”, and it also received significant state financial support from National Cinema Center and JSC “Latvijas finieris”.

“This film, taking into account the nearby war between Ukraine and Russia, has become even more relevant for the people of our country. The story of the film contains references to the invasion of Livonia by the Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century, since the characters in the film are also fighting against the invaders to liberate their native land.We don’t know how long the war will last in the neighborhood, but what we can do now is to encourage children’s and young people’s interest in historical events and strengthen their feelings of patriotism,” said film producer and artist Māris Putniņš.

The entire film production team has many years of experience in making animated films. Since the early 1990s, the film studio has produced nearly 200 puppet animation films. The producer and artist of “Lielais Indriķis” is Māris Putniņš, director – Jānis Zimmermanis, cinematographer and editor – Ēvalds Lācis, sound operator – Anrijs Krenbergs, computer graphics and visual effects artist – Andris Gailītis, video engineer – Andris Zemītis .
