Smoke Sauna Sisterhood
July 14 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Feature Documentary/2023/Estonia/89min/Directed by Anna Hints
A truly exceptional documentary focusing on a rural sauna in Estonia in which women come together to share their innermost secrets and personal experiences.
Talking in the close confines of the sauna, these women open up to each other, their voices filling the steamy air of the sauna.
Haunting, heartbreaking, poignant, funny, and sad, these conversations are beautifully filmed by Ants Tammik, who creates a landscape of steam, water, and bodies, as these women talk, cleanse themselves and regain the strength.
