    Original title: Vabadus algab seest. Kai-Mai Olbri autoportree

    2009 | Documentary, Portrey | Director: Kai-Mai Olbri

    This film's central theme is freedom - human and above all artist's freedom: artistic, spiritual and physical, observed retroactively by the author herself. This sincere and confessional biography examines the author's complicated and versatile artistic nature. Marriage to a loved one brings on a clear understanding of responsibility. You become positive, that happy co-existence is what allows a human being to feel free. It is because of that freedom, that you can take on new challenges and understand, that be it painting, writing, acting, or filming - your art is one whole.
