A new documentary of the prominent Estonian filmmaker Kersti Uibo was supported for development by Estonian Film Institute and Estonian Cultural Endowment.
Kersti Uibo: The film shows how closely Nature and choral singing are connected. A human being needs for balance besides healthy environment also beauty and harmony. The Children's and Youth Song Festival of 2023 provides such a structure. Song is a way of breathing that unites the disparate voices of a choir. Not only with one another but also with the music of the whispering pines.
