KiNO! at Sydney Eesti Maja

The Estonian Film Festival Australia (EFFA) and Sydney Eesti Selts (SES) are proud to present….

“Last Friday of the Month” KiNO! @ Sydney Eesti Maja, on Friday, the 25th of November!

On the program this month:


18:30 – 19:00
‘Tulnukas’ (Alien) – (M) 2006
A short film written and directed by Rasmus Merivoo


What happens when the leader of a gang is struck on the head by a shovel and wakes up to reality?
Set in the 1990’s, Tulnukas is a black comedy about a gang of ‘põmmpea’ (red-necks) who cruise for trouble in bad tracksuits and dodgy cars while chomping down burgers and picking fights with headbangers and…each other.
Whilst the language is definitely not for the faint hearted, Tulnukas is an insight into a sub-class of Estonia that Estonian society tried/is trying to forget.
Staring most of the rat-pack of contemporary Estonian cinema and stage, this short film still manages to hold a story line and deliver a message.
If you like ‘Swift n Shift’ on SBS T.V., this could be right up your alley.

Starring: Märt Avandi, Ott Sepp


19:00 – 19:30
Intermission where you can grab some finger food and a drink from the bar


19:30 – 21:00
‘Kinnunen’ – (M) 2007
A feature film by Andri Lupp

Yet another Finn has fallen off a ship in the port of Tallinn. He has come to Estonia to find a proper wife.
‘Kinnunen’ is a comedy about Juha Kinnunen and the teacher Õie Kannike, who, as chance or fate would have it, start to teach each other.
Kinnunen is not an ordinary man. He is a Finnish man.
Õie is not an ordinary woman. She is an Estonian woman.
It is difficult to find a common language. Because one is a woman and the other is a man.

Winner of ‘Cottbus Discovery Award’ 2008

Starring: Sesa Lehto (Finland), Maria Peterson
