Kihnu lapsed pool sajandit hiljem (2014)

Documentary Duration 28:33

Director Mark Soosaar gets in touch with the people from the Kihnu island who were once filmed as children half a century ago, in 1964. Now that the same people are in their sixties they watch the old documentary about them. The black-and-white film frames recall memories and flashbacks. Reunion with former schoolmates is sincere and heart-warming. Time has changed a lot in Kihnu island. Outer world intrudes into every home, lots of residents of Kihnu island have moved to the mainland or even abroad. Does Kihnu language and spirit have a future?
