- Kõhedad muinaslood / Eerie Fairy Tales (2019)
Kõhedad muinaslood / Eerie Fairy Tales (2019) is an anthology of bizarre, fantastic and spooky tales from the past, present and future, dealing with curses, witches, perfect crime and science experiments. A showcase of acclaimed works by Mart Sander is a collection of uncanny tales of the past and future, of love and fear, of this world and the Beyond. A large number of Estonian top actors take part in this playful and thought-provoking fantasy film. The Demonic Narrator tells us four fairy tales for grown-ups.
- „Tegelikult / Actually“ recounts the journeys and lives of three people who seem to share both the past and the present who intersect paths in a lonely wayside hotel.
- „Üksilduse allikas / The Spring of Solitude“ tells the story of a young village boy Hans falls in love with the mysterious maiden he meets at the sacred spring and decides to free her from an ancient curse.
- „Peiteaeg / Abeyance“ tells of two investigators trying to solve the secrets of a World War II Nazi research centre.
- „Kammerteener on süüdi / The Butler Did It“ is an Agatha Christie-esque murder mystery spiced with black humor, where it befalls to the butler to expose the murderer(s) over a dinner party. The film is perfect for anyone who loves magical realism and enjoys solving puzzles.
Doors will open at 5:00pm with the short film screened first around 5:30pm. A brief intermission will be held between, where people can go to the bar and purchase drinks and Estonian-style toasties. The feature film will then be played afterwards.
