Synopsis

Hard work has always been an important part of the Estonian national character. This group of films sees people trying to do the best that they can in often difficult circumstances. No matter what life may throw at them, the indomitability of spirit will always remain as the protagonists of our films work through the complexities and navigate the constant ups and downs of this thing that we call Estonia.

Synopsis

The people are waiting for someone special. Someone special is born – a grown man in a suit. They follow the man and cheer for his theatrical but utterly pointless performances.

Synopsis

There, where there are no tracks and the fallen trees embrace the rubble, someone sits in the Indian summer’s crispy grass. Things felt can not be erased but they fade into future wisdom. Maybe it is not earthly this road I have to walk, but how can I know if I am subjected to gravitation.
