Estonia is a worthy ánd odd member of the European Union at the same time. It thrives on contradiction –technology and nature, collectivism and individualism–, just like Europe. On the one hand, the European community wants to present itself as homogeneous space with a uniformly applied set of rules. On the other hand, it wants to encourage differences and individuality. Grab your chance during Estonia on Film to get to know everything about this inspiring duality.
