So long, Dracula! (1993)

Title in Estonian: Isake Dracula Eesti variant

Documentary Duration 54:00

Occupied Estonia. Stalin and his era when poets wrote him odes and poems but the bushwhackers sang: " ... and our aim is to kill Stalin". From the tribunes, Stalin was addressed as "the great friend of Estonian nation", nevertheless, for the majority of Estonian Stalin's name embodied the violence and lies that hit Estonia. This influenced all areas of life and no-one was left untouched by the terror. The documentary breakrs the myth about the joint resistance of Estonian nation to the foreign power and gives the warning that there is the possibility that similar things could happen again.
