Tuhamäed / Ash Mountains (2014)
Catalysis Films & Film Tower Kuubis
Kohtla-Järve is a pointless dump. Or is it? Based on the author’s personal relationship with his home town, and his recently deceased mother, the film takes a look under the surface of the “Other Estonia”. Created during the Soviet Union, populated by a Slavic minority and forgotten by the European-minded majority –the beauty and peculiarity of this area tends to be swept under the rug of the 21st century.
