By Vilis Lācis. In Latvian language.
Vilis Lācis (May 12, 1904 – February 6, 1966) was a Latvian writer and communist politician. Lācis was under periodic surveillance by the Latvian secret services due to his political activities. Eventually Lācis became a favorite of Latvian president Karlis Ulmanis, who personally ordered the destruction of the surveillance files on Lācis. Lācis wrote newspaper editorials highly favorable of the Ulmanis regime, while still remaining a Communist supporter, and Ulmanis’s government generously funded Lācis’s writing and a film adaptation of ‘Fisherman’s Son’. During the Soviet period, eight films based on Lācis’s works were produced, including a new adaptation of ‘Fisherman’s Son’ in 1957.
