Four White Shirts (1967)

Middle-aged cultural worker Anita Sondore feels that the song lyrics of the young poet Cēzars Kalniņš, as sung by a youth ensemble, are inappropriate. She writes a letter of complaint to the newspaper, thus setting in motion the system of censorship. “Four White Shirts” is a sensitive and emotional portrayal of the spirit of 1960‘s youth. R. Kalniņš’ dissection of the arts censorship system turned out to be too on point, and therefore – unforgivable. The film was banned from being shown and “shelved”. But it still lived on in legend and through the songs that Imants Kalniņš had composed for the film. The first time it was screened to the public was in 1986, when the songs had already achieved cult status.
