Snow Crazy

2008 / Latvia / 34min

There is a popular Latvian folksong which begins with the phrase “I was singing out high on a mountain”. The irony of it is that according to physical geography there are no mountains in Latvia. So what exactly is the place where the Latvians are “singing out”? It may be safely said that it’s the same place where they are skiing. That’s how we make mountains out of molehills...Snow-covered mountains, to be sure.
