Dir Reeli Reinaus

Observational documentary reflects the eternal conflict of art and everyday life.

Some Notes About Love
Dir Maris Kerge

At one moment I realized that being a filmmaker gives me freedom. I began seeing my solitude not as a mistake but as a creative starting point. So, I decided to make an experiment. To live with a person who I don’t know from before, and to document our relationship. I wanted to find out if art can substitute real life. And to explore the possibility of unconditional love.

Dir Hõbe Ilus

Margus, 17, once opened his eyes to the world earlier than planned. Ever since, he has been guided through life by his loving family. This film is about Margus and his mother and the unconditional love that unfolds through shared creativity and
the sense of presence.

Little Resistance
Dir Ruta Pakalne

Movement classes are part of Ruila Põhikool curriculum, with a goal to develop body awareness and togetherness that is explored by the students. The focus of the film is to open up the necessity of having movement classes in daily life for kids. In this case kids that are given the approach that is quite alternative and gives them freedom, but they are still part of an alternative system that they try to join or not. Even if it is good for them, there is still someone who does not want to be subordinated to the practise.
