Ruch and Norie 

December 3, 2016 at 3:45PM
at the Peace Latvian Ev. Lutheran Church
Ruch and Norie” is a Latvian-produced documentary of a human interest story about two contrasting people striking up a surprising, emotional and spiritual relationship. Japanese student Norie travels to Latvia to study the Suiti community, where she meets Ruch, one of the oldest Suiti women. That changes Norie’s life forever and the close bond between them doesn't break even after her return to Japan. Norie thinks she has found her deceased grandma in Ruch. Meanwhile, Ruch worries about Norie and trembles at the news of every earthquake in Japan. The documentary "Ruch and Norie" shows us all that there are no borders to a genuine human relationship filled with laughter, caring and love.

This free event will take place on December 3, 2016 at 4:30PM at the Peace Latvian Ev. Lutheran Church, 83 Main Street, Ottawa. Doors open at 3:45PM. Light refreshments will be served. The screening will be in Latvian with English subtitles. Free admission, but tickets are required. To reserve your seat, please click here.
