County Court (2020)

Original title: Maakohus

Feature film | Drama Duration 15:00

A short film by Eeva Mägi is packed with absurdity and tells a rather
conventional story in a rather unconventional way. The film reflects a court drama where a mother and a father, two ex-spouses, fight over the custody of their 5-year old son in court. The whole court process takes place in the middle of a grain field and on that field the courtroom
has no boundaries much like the mother and father whose actual goal is to exact vengeance on each other with no regard to the means used.
