In the Truth / Patiesībā (2016 - Ongoing)

How much are we willing to give in order to approach, look over or adjust the inner borders that we have placed upon ourselves? In the Truth is a self-reflective story about a Jehovah’s Witness, his attempts of fitting within different groups of society, whilst accompanied by the fear of alienation from his peers, both those who share and who don’t share his religious views. The project is a search for balance between doubts and vivacious conviction.
