  • Waiting for a miracle

    • Documentary DP

    Filmmaker Aljona Surzikova unflinchingly turns the camera upon herself and her family to capture the excitement and mayhem of the arrival of a new baby, whose kitten-like mewling is welcomed by all. When events take an unexpected turn, the viewer is irrevocably drawn into the turmoil (Eileen Arandiga)

  • Edith Karlson

    • Production Company

    A portrait of a top Estonian sculptor. Edith lives in Hiiumaa during the summer, that’s where we start getting to know her. He works very hard and because of that he achieves a lot. In the film, we see two different worlds, the closed and even lonely life of the artist, the process of creating art and then introducing it to the public in the art capital of the world (at Art Basel in Switzerland), large exhibitions, the openings of the festivals where the sculptor’s works end up. Edith is the mother of a little boy, the life partner of the legendary Raul Saaremets in the indie music scene. Edith is already quite well-known to the Estonian audience, and now is the moment when she takes her first independent steps on the international scene, in strategically the best places. What is the responsibility of the artist? Can art change life?

  • Ukrainian Women

    • Production Company

    What is war and how does it break into the lives of ordinary people? In March, we watched thousands of women and children flee from bombs and sirens, as thousands of mothers saved their children. Ukrainian women (working title) is a story about four women who were forced to leave Ukraine. We filmed on the border of Ukraine and Poland, women from the eastern regions of Ukraine are fleeing the war to Europe. Oksana is a police officer, she is from Lysychansk, she has a 7-month-old baby in her arms. Under shelling, the child could not sleep. Oksana took her son away, but her husband and parents remained in Ukraine. Lena is a literature and Ukrainian language teacher, she also runs away with her teenage children. Lena and Oksana find shelter in Estonia. The film shows their life in Estonia and reality which they meet after coming back to Ukrainian cities Dnepr and Kiev. Oksana from Chernihiv, after spending almost 5 weeks under shelling and bombing, decides to take her daughter away from the dark basement where they have been sitting all this time. At the train station in Warsaw, Oksana thinks about where to go. After 6 months we met her in Warsaw. Then we follow her to the Chernihiv bus station the moment she comes back home. Valentina, also from Chernihiv, decided to stay in Estonia and to continue working at a farm. On September 1, 2022, she escorted her child Masha for the second time in her life to first grade. We follow the lives of women in Europe, and then we return home to Ukraine with them. The war is not over yet, but living away from husbands and homeland is unbearable. Who left and who donated? War through the eyes of women.
