“in which unrequited love is more troubling than the plague, the Devil and a forest full of ghosts”
About the film:
Winner of Best Cinematography at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. In a poor Estonian village, the main problem is how to survive the cold, dark winter. Nothing is taboo — people steal from each other, from their German manor lords, from spirits, the devil, and from Christ — and young Liina tries to gain the love of farmhand Hans by any means necessary, even if that means tapping into black magic.
Rainer Sarnet’s November won 9 Estonian Film and TV Awards and was selected as the Estonian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.
About the filmmaker:
Rainer Sarnet is an Estonian film director who started in animation, advertising and publishing.

He also directed episodes of the award-winning financial drama series The Bank as well as stage plays by Przybyszewski, Gorky, and Jelinek.
Sarnet’s third feature November was adapted from a novel by Andrus Kivirähk.See our upcoming films
