The Moon Hunter (2015)

Original title: Jüri

Documentary Duration 52:00


Portrait documentary about Jüri Sillart - an innovator, an expressionist, a bright filmmaker and a warm-hearted teacher for whom cinema meant not only a professional field but his whole life. Sillart's work was acknowledged in Estonia, in the former Soviet Union and abroad. Jüri was a sharp personality with a curious mind. Life with all its manifestations was a great source of inspiration for him - everyday events, painting, photography, history of various religions, philosophical and esoterical literature, history, astronomy, mathematics - he was interested in all of this. His colleagues, students and close ones share their memories in the documentary. There are excerpts from films that Jüri Sillart has added his creative contribution to.
