EUFF 2017: Latvia - Mellow Mud

Renars Vimba • Latvia • 2016 • 106 min
Latvian with English subtitles

Mellow Mud follows Raya, an intelligent, gifted seveteen-year-old, who lives with her younger brother and their grandmother in rather harsh circumstances. Raya and her brother despise their grandmother, but without their parents around they have no choice but to live under her roof—and by her rules. However, after returning from school one day to find her grandmother dead, Raya decides to bury her in the garden without telling anyone. Resourceful and determined, Raya takes control of the household, but with money tight she soon finds herself rushing into questionable decisions in order to make ends meet. A touching, tough-minded coming-of-age story and Winner of several Latvian National Film Awards, Mellow Mud is extraordinary, and Elina Vaska’s performance as Raya is a revelation.
