Synopsis

In the beginning of 60ties behind the Iron Wall a new generation of filmmakers in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia challenged the Soviet dogma of propaganda newsreels and turned documentary filmmaking into a form of Art. They explored metaphor, promoted associative thinking, balanced facts and images in an earlier unseen and groundbreaking visual language – all that was and is called Poetic cinema.
Half a century later we try to build bridges of time and detect how the old masters were thinking and how they managed – in the midst of that vast Soviet Solaris Ocean – to put a Human in the focus and search for the answers to the Eternal questions – the ones that every generation has to answer anew…
