What filmmakers say

We were looking for empty prisons, and there are very few in Europe. And then we got the Brasa prison in Riga, which is a gift for a filmmaker. We shot four different prisons in one prison there. We actually chose Latvia because it was the only place in Europe you could shoot these scenes.

I would like to thank the talented and professional film crew that worked with me in Latvia. Their experience made it possible to shoot the film in a very short period of time. We understood each other perfectly.

I’d be absolutely thrilled to return to Riga and I’m sure that many other film crews will be visiting soon. I shall certainly be telling people what a fantastic time we had there.
