Disco and Atomic War

Disko ja tuumasõda

directed by Jaak Kilmi
Estonia, 2009
  • Estonian
  • English

Synopsis

Disco and Atomic War tells the story of a strange kind of information war: when TV broadcasts from Finland could be picked up in Estonia, the Soviet totalitarian regime goes toe to toe with the heroes of western popular culture.

Our take

The Cold War in all its absurdity blooms in this sly, provocative, preposterously fun documentary about a battle for the airwaves in a corner of the Soviet empire where, with Knight Rider and Emmanuelle, a dictatorship may have met its match. In HD.
