Special programme CLOSED SOCIETIES

Fifteen years of freedom has made us forget what life was like under the "glorious" diktat of the Communist Party. But many of Estonia’s former fellow Soviet republics and numerous states all over the world continue to live life under the strong hand of various authoritarian leaders, and can only dream of democracy. The documentary programme Closed Societies takes a look at countries where political freedom continues to be trampled on, or where the people have recently managed to topple the dictator from his throne. The programme includes films from Russia and its satellite states, as well as the former Yugoslavia, Iran and Cuba. The films expose the true face of dictatorship, show democratic movements in the process of fighting for freedom, and bring us the life of ordinary people in closed dictatorships. Watching these films forces us to admit - Estonia has done pretty well for itself!

Seminar CLOSED SOCIETIES

In addition to the film programme, a Closed Societies seminar takes place on 8 December, drawing attention to the deepening authoritarian tendencies in Russia, and assessing the chances for democracy of Russia’s neighbours. Is Russia a basket case when it comes to democracy? Do the countries in the Russian sphere of interest have any hope of establishing democratic societies? Experts from Russia, Belarus, Georgia and Moldova will take part in seeking answers to these questions. The special programme is supported by the Open Estonia Foundation.
