2017 – “12 elementi ainavā”
12 documentary TV series about nature conservation theme. Nature has changed since the first Latvian movies were taken. These TV series shows how it was almost 100 years ago and how it looks today.

2016 – Life in Motion
Despite of the on-going cultural cooperation of Baltic and Nordic countries the intercultural dialogue between both countries is still rather undeveloped and available to a limited circle of the society (people working in the areas of art, higher education, science). At the wider society the level of awareness about the life in the other country is still relatively low and based on stereotypes that all Norwegians are rich and Latvians live in the edge of Eastern Europe and goes to Norway to work in low-paid jobs. To dispel stereotypes and make wider picture of ongoing in neighboring country foundation Elm Media cooperating with Bergen International Film Festival (Norway) made an anthropological photo book “Life in Motion”.
