Event description

Description

Embassy of Latvia, in partnership with the National Film Center of Latvia, presents the Latvian Film Club - film series from June 2019 to May 2020. Most active movie goers will receive prizes in May 2020. Registration required via Eventbrite (free tickets).

A popular science documentary film – a historical reconstruction with dramatic elements tells about the 13th-century Baltic peoples who later formed the Latvian nation. The main character of the film, a merchant from Gotland named Lars, travels through the lands inhabited by the Curonians, Latgalians, Selonians, Semigallians, Prussians, Yatvings, Gallindians, Aukshtaitians and Zhemaitians, who at the time had reached their highest stage of development. Historical reconstructions and live action scenes, computer animation and a voice-over narrative by experts in the field provide an insight into the lives of the ancient people of the Baltic region, the last European heathens – what they did, what their beliefs were, and what made them strong.
