Documentary charts research at ancient holy site

LSM continues its English-subtitled series of documentary films entitled Latvian Code, selected in an annual contest held by Latvian Public Television (LTV).

These films reflect the extraordinary lives of people in Latvia and each year serve as a blueprint of the state of affairs in the private lives and aspirations of today's Latvian residents. 

This year's final film to be featured, titled Miracle Hunters: Zilaiskalns, is about Zilaiskalns (Blue Hill), an allegedly sacred place and its own local spirit man Anatolijs. The place is associated with the Marta of the Blue Hill, a legendary woman with extraordinary abilities. 

During the filming, enthusiasts started drilling works at the hill to look for an ancient building supposedly there. "With this film I wanted to accentuate whether you should dig up a holy place, keeping in mind that Zilaiskalns is, after all, a protected location," said director Liene Laviņa-Kalnaella in an interview with LSM

To watch the film with subtitles, pick English in the subtitles menu in the player above. 

Latvia, 2018.
