The Irredeemable Optimist: a Portrait of Director Ove Musting

While director Ove Musting is a top professional of the Estonian television landscape, his fame and acclaim belie a dark truth: work is scarce, most projects never end up on air and those that do are shot with such stress-inducingly low budgets that the only way to unwind is to stomp directly to the sea or on the stage – as a guitarist in a punkband.
