Is it easy to be young? (Vai viegli būt jaunam?) is a cult classic, Latvian documentary from 1986. The film describes the lives and problems the Soviet youth faced during Perestroika. Covering more than just anti-government sentiment, the documentary goes deep to show what these young Soviets’ desires, dreams, and source of meaning were.

In Is it easy to be young?, you’ll hear a watchman at an important WWII monument discuss the absence of ideas one would live or fight for. You’ll meet the punk rockers who demolished a train after a particularly good concert. You’ll see drug and substance abuse on screen – a rarity in Soviet film, but a real problem for society then. And you’ll witness veterans of The Soviet War in Afghanistan share how they feel like very old strangers back home.
