Speaker, Producers on the Move
Psychological thriller follows the reunion of a newly released inmate with his sister. The sibilings set out on a journey together across a bleak winter Nordic landscape, struggling to communicate and re-connect by overcoming their dark secrets.
After her daddy’s death, Karmen commits an atrocious act against her half-brother and must now face the dark void of the universe, which can only be filled with love.
Located in the heart of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, the Hippodrome used to be the centre of entertainment. This hypnotic black and white film is an ode to a disappearing era and a unique subculture in a place soon to be demolished to make way for yet another brand new office building complex in the city’s never-ending triumphal march of business-oriented real estate development.
