Docpoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival

Programme (2020)

Margit Lillak (2020)

Director Margit Lillak (b. 1974) presents the DocPoint audiences her second feature length film THE CIRCLE, which depicts an Estonian ecological commune. The filming began in 2014, which allows the documentary to witness the rise and fall of the commune – both the good intentions and the dark sides of humanity, but always through an empathic lens. Lillak began her career with short documentaries, and her short Pastacas won the main prize at the EstDocs Film Festival in Toronto.

Margit Lillak is in Helsinki from January 30 to February 1.
