AUTUMN BALL(THE) / S‹GISBALL


"SŁgisball" DQ winner in Tallinn 2007
Directed by: by Veiko ’unpuu, Estonia 2007

Fragments of six lonely lives, stuck in the humdrum world of Soviet-era tower blocks. How close can we get to other human beings? Is it possible to live a life completely devoid of love? The questions are painfully apparent and the answers much less so. On the other hand, the film offers a possibility of warmth, of laughter. A sparse commodity, true, but inherently present. A tale of human seclusion and the incapability to reach others.

"But you also find humour and the absurd, and the properly attuned viewer might even find themselves laughing out loud. If I were to define the film, I would say that AUTUMN BALL is a pitch-black comedy about loneliness, despair and hope". - Veiko ’unpuu, director
