PAGAN QUEEN, THE 

STARRING: Winter Ave Zoli (Tristan+Isolde, Hellboy, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) 

DIRECTOR: CONSTANTIN WERNER 

The Pagan Queen is a historic drama with fantasy elements based on the folklore eternalized in the story of “The Crown of Vysehrad.” It is a love story between Libuse, the Slavic mythological heroine of 8th century Bohemia, and queen of the Slaivc tribes, and Premysl, a simple farmer. The film recreates the pagain, pre-Christian time period of the so-called Dark Ages, and shows that this magical epoch in history was in fact a time of ancient wisdom, personal freedom, closeness to nature and open sensuality.
