Two Hours to Happiness – new documentary of Moonika Siimets will be screened at DocPoint Helsinki on January 31.
After her masterful fictional debut The Little Comrade some three years ago, director Moonika Siimets (born 1980) returns to the world of documentary films with her new film on the Estonian diaspora. Estonians have sought for better living standards and working conditions from the northern shores of the Gulf of Finland, and many have settled in for good. Some have wanted to make a clear break from Estonia for their families, whereas others are trying to balance between two countries. There’s always someone longing back home, but returning may not always bring peace of mind.
DocPoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival will be held as an online festival on 31.01.–06.02.2022
