Film Screening: Rodeo. Taming a wild country by Raimo Joerand & Kiur Aarma
Register now for an exclusive screening of the 2018 documentary Rodeo taking place on Thursday 15 November 2018. The film is set in the years following the first free elections in Estonia.
It is 1992 and the first free elections held in Estonia since World War II have, to the surprise of all, brought to power young and idealistic political forces. They are led by 32 year old Mart Laar, Europe’s youngest prime minister, who is charged with crafting a country out of chaos.
This is a story about gaining and losing trust, about the widening conflict between idealists and a rising economic elite, when a prime minister’s good options grow fewer by the day. A story of idealists becoming politicians and opponents.
