An interview with Stanislavs Tokalovs, the director of "Everything Will Be Alright", interviewer Edvinas Pukšta.
"The courageous documentary examines the dynamics of the director's family during rapid historical changes in Latvia.
The 90-year-old grandmother Ina gradually loses her memory but questionable 9th of May rituals are still sacred for the proud veteran of WWII. Mother Irina is stuck between the ailing Ina and distancing husband Raul, who candidly refuses to celebrate two New Year’s Eves and prefers to end displeasing traditions of the shady past. Younger sister Patricija is a child of Latvian Independence with absolutely different values. Staņislavs is torn to unite the alienated dysfunctional family and raises hard questions of prime importance on the intersection of choices. What will the situation become when family members with different political and ideological beliefs come together under one roof knowing that the full-scale war in Ukraine has started.
Stanislavs Tokalovs, who started as a filmmaker in 2012, has completed three full-length films during this time. Remaining an observer in his documentary films, he allows the participants to shape the story without giving judgments. ""The film also has humor, the humor of everyday life, it is not only full on drama,"" Tokalovs mentions.
