Kirsitubakas (Cherry Tobacco), Estonia 2014
Directed by Andres Maimik, Katrin Maimik
Written by Andres Maimik, Katrin Maimik
Screenplay by Andres Maimik, Katrin Maimik
Produced by Anneli Lepp
Length 93 minutes
Synopsis: Cherry Tobacco is about a small-town girl, Laura, who is constantly bored. Her mother gets on her nerves, boys her age are stupid and everything anyone wants to do seems childish. One day Laura’s energetic friend Merit invites her on a hike to a bog led by a middle-aged nature-lover called Joosep. The beginning of the trip is anything but promising: the relation- ship between the reserved girl and the outgoing Joosep, who tries to impress the hiking party with his hillbilly style and bizarre rituals, becomes tense. But much to her own surprise, Laura discovers that as the hike continues she is enchanted by the rugged charms of Joosep. The quest is coming to its irrefutable end and Laura has to decide whether a relationship with an older man is a mere step along the winding road towards becoming a woman or whether it is her very first love.

Saturday, April 28, 2012 at

Library and Archives Canada Auditorium (395 Wellington Street, Ottawa)

Kirjad Inglile (Letters to Angel), Estonia 2011

Screenwriter    Madis Kõiv, Sulev Keedus

Director   Sulev Keedus

Producer   Kaie-Ene Rääk, Olli Soinio

Length   114 min


Synopsis:LETTERS TO ANGEL is a fiction film about Kirotaja, a man who was sent to fight

in Afghanistan years ago, where he converted to Islam. He now returns home only to find himself

facing other kinds of war; the front line in the decrepit Estonian town runs between Eastern and

Western culture, men and women, common sense and madness. Somewhere amidst all these

battles is his daughter, Angel, who Kirotaja has decided to find after all the years of absence.

His only leads are the sound of his daughter crying, heard once on the telephone, and a dog-eared

notebook full of letters addressed to her.

Meanwhile, the town has other plans for him upon his return.
