RODEO: TAMING A WILD COUNTRY

Competition

RAIMO JÕERAND, KIUR AARMA

It’s 1992 and the first free elections held in Estonia since the World War II have, to the surprise of all, brought to power young and idealistic political forces. They are led by 32-year-old Mart Laar, Europe’s youngest prime minister, who is charged with crafting a country out of chaos. This is a story about gaining and losing trust, about the widening conflict between idealists and a rising economic elite, when a prime minister’s good options grow fewer by the day. A story of idealists and friends becoming politicians and opponents.
