Lands of Mist

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are neither Slavic nor Scandinavian. Indeed, these countries called the countries of the mists, are mysterious, close and distant at the same time. At the winter solstice, the sacred fire that celebrates the return of the sun revives ancient beliefs forgotten in the rest of Europe.


Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois decided to leave by bike to experience the Baltic winter and to try to meet the people who keep these ancestral cultures alive. A singular animist heritage that nourishes a deep relationship with nature.
