The Firewater


Directed by Hardi Volmer
Estonia, 1994
Crime, Drama


Towards the end of the 1920s the Finnish government introduced a twelve year long ban on alcohol. This resulted in very lively and profitable spirit smuggling from Estonia to Finland. This was risky business, where human life was of little worth. Tulivesi is a film set in this time.
