Babyface (2009)

Original title: Beebilõust

Documentary Duration 29:51


Andrus Elbing alias Babyface is a 28-year-old poet, rap singer, a hip-hop artist and a former prisoner from the island of Saaremaa. He tells his story through recollections and poetry - how he became from a risk group child to a criminal young man, from a prisoner to a poet and a musician. Through his art, Babyface looks for his way out from his "personal imprisonment"; however, the locks of an inner prison door won't open that easily. The documentary follows the way Andrus adjusts to freedom after his imprisonment. Is it possible to escape such past after all? Is his inner fire burning with the same brightness in freedom than in an ascetic prison cell?
