A Monument to Please Everyone (2011)

Original title: Et meeldiks kõigile

Documentary Duration 87:00

A Monument to Please Everyone

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. With strong political and social pressure, the main characters of the film find themselves in many tragicomic situations and a constant row of ordeals. All of this paints a colourful and unique picture of the creation of a symbol during a time of financial crisis in Estonia.

Director: Kristina Norman
