      The Gorals: Highlanders of Carpathia - Documentary

      From the dawn of history, on the highest peaks of the Carpathian Mountains set against the elements, there lives a forgotten people. For as long as they remember, the Carpathian highlanders passed on their way of life -- love of freedom, a connection with nature, and ancient traditions and professions that have made them one of the most unique ethnic groups in all of Europe.


      There will be tickets available at the door while seats last. Please reserve tickets online in advance to guarantee your seats!

      ABOUT THE GORALS - Documentary Film

      Experience the passion and craftsmanship that the shepherd, lumberjack, bagpipe master, and wheelwright pour from their soul into their occupations, not just for the survival of their families, but also for the love of these arts that weave together the fabric of their remote communities.

      When confronted with harsh storms, wild animals and difficult terrain in the most inaccessible Carpathian mountain range, along with long days of hard, sometimes dangerous work, the spirit and character of the Gorals stands unshaken.

      But another threat ominously looms. The modern world from outside the mountains is encroaching on their way of life. Is the culture of the Carpathian highlanders sustainable, or could these be the final times for these people living this lifestyle, and not just preserving it as folklore in the museums of folk art?
