MILLENIUM ONLINE


Following the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the Millennium Festival from September 23rd to October 1st.

However, we have decided to allow you to discover documentaries during the festival (27/03 to 04/04).

We have selected a panel of films, each with a link to living in exceptional conditions.

In these difficult times, let's take advantage of the slowing down of our life rhythms to exchange ideas, build the future, activate our creativity, learn,...

So don't hesitate to give us your reactions and impressions on the films by writing to us here !

. Oncle Bernard – L'anti-leçon d'économie - Richard Brouillette - 2015 - 79'

This fascinating interview with Uncle B. represents a true “anti­lesson” of economy. Without embellishment nor artifice, the director gives space to the rich, dissenting and caustic talk of Maris.

With “Eastern Memories”, the film directors take us on an unexpected road movie into the Far East of Mongolia, Japan, China and South Korea. A visually stunning journey of adventure and exploration, love and death, conspiracies and the fall of nations, narrated by the journals of Finnish linguist, diplomat and journeyman G.J. Ramstedt (1873-1950).

. Ash and Money - 
Tiit Ojasoo, Ene-Liis Semper - 2013 - 98'

The NO99 Theatre announced in March of 2010 that it would use all the tricks commonly used in politics and communications over the following two months to create a new successful and energetic super-party “Unified Estonia”. The theatre organised a party convention and staged it with the participation of 7000 people. The documentary film produced about the project and its influences is a study of the state of affairs in democracy, the media and grass-roots society in the Republic of Estonia.
