THE LOST TRADITION OF MAKING QUALITY SERIES. LATVIAN CASE

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to discuss the concept of quality TV series in the
context of Latvian film history and contemporary practice.
Lately, the so-called quality TV series have been extremely successful, especially
when it comes to the series offered by global streaming companies. Contemporary
TV series made in Latvia have not been noticed internationally yet, although there
are examples in the history of Latvian cinema that confirm that Latvian filmmakers
have created quality series as early as the 1980s. What is a high-quality series in the context of modern Latvian cinema and why have the traditions of making quality series been lost?
