A film screening followed by a Q&A with the Estonian Ambassador to the UK, H.E.Ms Tiina Intelmann.
An exclusive screening of the 2018 film documentary Rodeo, set in the years following the first free elections in Estonia since World War II: They have to the surprise of all brought to power young and idealistic political forces. They are led by 32 year old Mart Laar, Europe’s youngest prime minister, who is charged with crafting a country out of chaos.
This is a story about gaining and losing trust, about the widening conflict between idealists and a rising economic elite, when a prime minister’s good options grow fewer by the day. A story of idealists becoming politicians and opponents.
