An Ordinary Devil

Paprastas velnias

Directed by Alicija Žukauskaitė
Lithuania, 2012


When Shrovetide, Lithuanians wear masks of devils, gypsies and Jews, yelling: “Winter winter, leave the yard!”. The ritual is an old way for driving out darkness, cold and the devil. And the way to get rid of a Jew, perhaps? Or several hundred thousand of Jews?
