Revolution of Pigs (2004)

Original title: Revolution of Pigs

Feature film | Youth Duration 96:09

In the summer of 1986 thousands of Estonian youngsters go to the gathering of Estonian Students' League in order to spend three days full of adventures, romance and partying. Yet, the pressure of the System is here - one has to follow ideological rules and keep one's mouth shut, notwithstanding the fact that the slogans are not valid any more and the graduates can be sent to the war in Afghanistan. Pressure creates anti-pressure and the struggle against the System explodes.
