Magic abounds in this black&white Gothic fantasy film about a love triangle between three young people from different classes. They use trickery while trying to win over their love in a 19th-century Estonia beset by spirits, shapeshifters, and the plague.
The director and one of the film’s screenwriter, Rainer Sarnet, will attend Q&A screenings of the film.
“Weird, beautiful and surprisingly affecting.”
John Defoe, Hollywood Reporter
The film was premiered at Tribeca Film Festival and won a deserved cinematography prize at the festival. It was selected as the Estonian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.
The film is screened in collaboration with the Estonian Film Institute. With the screening we are happy to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Estonia.
