Co-productions and the Changing Image of Estonian Cinema

(p.191) Chapter 12 Lessons of Neo-liberalism

This chapter examines European co-productions made in the 2000s in cooperation between Estonian and Western studios. While Estonian filmic ecology of the 1990s was shaped by turbulent realignments that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union and its vertically integrated film industry, by the 2000s local filmmakers started to gain a better footing in this profoundly transformed post-communist environment, defined, among other things, by the obligation to seek the approval of various funding bodies on the one hand and different audiences on the other. By looking into both the textual level and the production processes of two case studies Fed Up/Kõrini! (2005, Peeter Simm, Estonia/Germany) and The Snow Queen/Lumekuninganna (2010, Marko Raat, Estonia/Norway) this chapter will investigate how these new, profoundly transnational and neoliberal conditions have affected the face and public perception of Estonian ‘national film culture’.
