BRUTAL NEW FILM EXPLORES BALTIC TRIBE OF THE 13TH CENTURY
Acclaimed science documentary Baltic Tribes, a dazzling but brutal new film about the Baltic people in the 13th century from filmmakers Lauris Abele and Raitis Abele, will be released in North America this January.
13th century. Danish spy Lars enters the tribal lands of the Baltic people, where he takes part in religious rites, cruel forays, gets high during the summer solstice, becomes the slave of Curonians and even fights the crusaders. Who really were the last pagans of Europe? It’s a unique trip into the textures of the past and into the unknown lands of Baltic tribes.
Kaspars Anins, Kristaps Bedritis, Lauma Balode, and Carl Biorsmark star.
Baltic Tribes will be available on DVD and Digital January 7 from High Octane Pictures
