Commissioned by NOASS, Riga, Latvia, for an outdoor screening in 2008; produced during the residency in Riga; one of two works, the other entitled, Jugendstil.

Riga's most famous buildings were designed by Mikhail Eisenstein, Sergei Eisenstein's father. This 5 min film is about Mikhail Eisenstein's buildings in the style of the Sergei Eisenstein. In effect the son exacts revenge on the father (Sergei was never fond of his father). In larger parameters, it has to do with the ghosts of the twentieth century that are still present within Baltic states of Eastern Europe.
