Riho Västrik has a BA in History and Journalism and MA in Film Arts. His big interest in mountaineering was the first reason to consider filmmaking - the beauty of the mountains and human sufferings yearned for recording. Since 2003, Riho has been attracted to the Siberia and Far North. He has produced and co-produced a number of documentaries with Latvian, Lithuanian, Russian, German, French and Finnish filmmakers. Riho is an associate professor in the Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School in Tallinn and co-owner of the production company Vesilind.
Today’s schoolchildren are “digital natives”, but the technological revolution has disrupted the teaching profession too, and while digital technology invades our lives, schools are struggling to keep up. Teachers are concerned: today’s schools are ill-adapted to the challenges of the 21st Century and failure levels are worryingly high. Increasingly, kids are bored at school. A documentary is directed by Martin Meissonnier, produced by CAMPAGNE PREMIERE (France) and Vesilind (Estonia).
