About this Event

THE LITTLE COMRADE/Seltsimees laps

New York Premiere

100 minutes. In Estonian and Russian with English subtitles.

In the midst of the worst years of Stalin's reign of terror, six-year-old Leelo’s mother is sent to a prison camp. Haunted by her mother’s last words telling her to be a good girl, Leelo vows to always be on her best behavior. But this is not easy to do in the confusing grown-up world, particularly as her list of difficult questions just keeps growing: Why is the Estonian flag suddenly forbidden? Who is an enemy of the people? And, what are the ladies in the salon laughing at? As Leelo searches for answers in the hope that it will bring her mother back, she soon learns that being a good citizen and being a good daughter are not always the same thing. (Estonia, 2018)
