The Desert Of Fobidden Art

Films from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia ? over 2 years ago
I’ll note a couple of films considered as Estonian film classics. Hullumeelsus, Hukkunud Alpinisti Hotell, Kevade, Viimne Reliikvia, Siin Me Oleme, Noor Pensionär, Ukuaru, Ideaalmaastik. These films are probably the ones most Estonians can go on about and approve.
As for contemporaries, the most discussed is definitely Veiko Õunpuu.
Another one is Ilmar Raag’s Klass, in ways similar to the french namesake The Class.
Also Jaak Kilmi’s media documentary Disko Ja Tuumasõda.
I personally find Estonia’s pride of film-art in animation. Priit Pärn, Avo Paistik, Kaspar Jancis, Ülo Pikkov, Riho Unt.
To be honest I have no idea how could one get his hands on a lot of these.
I rarely see an Estonian piece go round anywhere but on shelf..
