Behind the Mysteries of Coral Castle
A 56’ documentary directed in 2009 by Vladislav Shchepin
How did a simple man has been able to discover the mystery of the levitation of huge blocks of stone (probably the one that was used to build the pyramids) and apply it to the construction of "Coral Castle" in Florida?
Edward Leedskalnin was a Latvian born under the Tzars in Russia. Turned away at the altar by his 16 years old bride, Edward crossed the seas and the continent to build an incredible monument in Florida more than 70 years ago. A tribute to his eternal love which inspired Rocker Billy Idol for his song « Sweet Sixteen »
Just as lively as his love stroy is the mystery surrounding its eventual scientific discoveries. Thousands of people around the world are working to identify them...
The film is available in europe (eastern and western) but not in Latvia
