In an Estonian village, werewolves, spirits, and disease plague villagers as they work to survive the cold, dark winter. Nothing is off-limits: people steal from one another, from their German manor lords, and from spirits, the devil, and Christ. Many of them turn to small thieving creatures known as kratts, who help their masters by stealing even more, even when barns are overflowing. This obsession makes the villagers more and more like the soulless creatures they command — all except a young farm girl, Liina, who is hopelessly and forlornly in love with a village boy named Hans. When her love drives her to desperate and mystical acts, the pragmatic farmers are faced with a question: Is the life they’ve had worth anything, if it lacks a soul? Directed by Rainer Somet (Estonia, 2017).Buy tickets/get more info now
