Kids of Kihnu
|Production:||Weiko Saawa Film|
The doc on the 9-year-old Kai from Kase farmstead tells a story of a young fiddler, singer, lover of lambs and goats. She is the youngest author of Estonian Radio as a reporter of news in Kihnu language. Thanks to the teacher Kuraga Mari, almost all kids of Kihnu have become skilly fiddlers and folk singers.
But if to take a closer look, we’d see that quite the same problems emerge in the children’s community as in the gown-ups’ one – envy and harrasment shadowing buoyancy. How would Kai solve these problems for herself, is about to unfold in the epilogue of the doc.
The brand new doc „Kids of Kihnu” by Mark Soosaar is a colorful reflection of freedom enjoyed by Kihnu people today.
