A Monument to Please Everyone

Year

Country
Estonia
Duration
87’
Director
Kristina Norman

In an atmosphere ripe with nationalism, two young engineers are commissioned by the Estonian Ministry of Defense to erect the country’s most important monument – a statue commemorating the War of Independence. Under strong political and social pressure, the heroes find themselves in many tragicomic situations and a constant row of ordeals. All of this paints a colorful and unique picture of the creation of a symbol during a time of financial crisis in Estonia.
