Maksim - Game Of Thrones 

Music Video, 2019

The forgotten pagan slavic pantheon

Christianity in its conquest overwrote a lot of pagan cultures and belief systems. The Slavic tribes had more than thirty gods which represented different aspects of nature. A lot of ancient mythologies thrive being rewritten for the big screen to this day. But to some, the sands of time were less generous. I came upon a book on Slavic mythology dating from early 20th century, published independently in a thousand copies and written by a Croatian filmmaker Franjo Ledic.

Since Game Of Thrones pantheon is built upon a remixed version of Indo European paganism, I decided it was time to awaken some old gods and remind Slavs why to this day we keep them in our daily expressions, superstitions and beliefs.
