Mother (Ema)

Estonia - Narrative - 89 minutes

Estonia's Official Submission for Best Foreign Language Oscar. Official Selection: Tribeca FIlm Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival.  

In a small town in Eastern Europe, Elsa has quietly assumed the role of the full time caretaker of her comatose son, who has been shot under mysterious circumstances. Who shot her son and why has gotten the locals in this small tight-knit town, where everyone seems to know everyone, abuzz. Acclaimed director Kadri Kõusaar weaves a taut, darkly comic whodunit that will keep audiences riveted. This is European cinema at its finest, and is already being pursued for English language remake. 

Dir: Kadri Kõusaar
