~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyone is invited to join the Philadelphia Society of Free Letts in commemorating May 4th undefined Latvia’s Second Independence Day.

At 6pm we will be showing a documentary on the 1998 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, DC. The film is in English.  After intermission we will be congratulating our long time board member Laris Kreslins on publishing his first poetry book.

Social hour will follow.

About the film:  Shortly after the 1998 festival, this film was produced by Charlie Weber and Dagmar Pfensig with help from Guntis Smidchens and the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, compiled it from over fifty hours of recordings from Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians.  They share parts of the festivals concert, many traditional crafts, discussion of traditional holidays (including the summer solstice), and many other interesting topics. .
