Estonian Film Institute supported the development of the Lauri Randla’s first feature „So Long Soviet Union” with 30 000 €

This is a humorous coming of age story about Johannes, whose destiny is to be always separated from his loved ones by an “iron curtain”. It is a story about being different, having hair when everyone else is bald and being bald when everyone else has hair… escaping with a toy car from a place that officially does not exist, brawling at school, 10–year old Johannes finally finds acceptance through love.  

The film will be shot in 2018 in co-production with Finnish company Bufo AB.
