Online documentary: The Guide

Take note – story published 9 years and 7 months ago

Latvians are said to be one of the more superstitious peoples in Europe. The Guide is one of the mythical characters they believe in that somehow leads us and determines where we go.

For ages Latvians have believed that the Guide can appear in different forms and figures. Three young people – a cameraman, sound recording engineer and film director – head off through all of Latvia to try and catch a glimpse of the Guide. But they get lost on the way…

This is the fifth, and final film in LSM's inaugural English-subtitled series featuring the five winners of Latvian Public Television’s (LTV) documentary contest 'Latvian Code'.
