The Rifleman is historical drama directed by Dzintars Dreibergs. It premiered on 8 November 2019 in Latvia and on 20 February 2020 internationally at the European Film Market.

The Rifleman pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of the WWI (world war one), as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farm-boy turned soldier. Though he is underage, and his dad, a former marksman, is overage for the army, they are both conscripted into one of Latvia’s first national battalions. The thrill of training is soon followed by reality, as shells burst around them in the endless mud. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, their lives are constantly in jeopardy.
