Online screening of movie “A Year Full of Drama” and discussion with a theatre director Michal Hába, will be part of the festival “One World 2021”.
A Year Full of Drama / Marta Pulk / Estonia 2019 / 108 min / English friendly – Alisja, a 21-year-old woman with Russian roots, lives in a remote part of Estonia. Her only theatre experience is from primary school, making her the ideal candidate for an experiment conducted by three Estonian artists. The film tracks Alisja’s yearlong theatre marathon and how it affects her life. The performances stir her emotions, calling forth deeply-stored memories, but the new experiences also sever her from her previous life and old friends. The unusual experiment shows that theatre is not only an institution but also key in forming our emotional and social understanding of the world.
