'Olga' Tapped for Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival ({{commentsTotal}})


Young Tartu director Kaur Kokk's work “Olga” is to be included in the competition program of the world's most prestigious festival for short films.

The eponymous character is a elderly guard at a downtown parking lot, who spends her days cleaning the car park of snow that just won't stop falling. As the snow piles up, her problems start to accumulate. In the middle of a personal crisis, waiting for her daughter who keeps her car there, the weather takes a turn for the worst and Olga is faced with a choice.

The Clermont-Ferrand Film festival was first opened in 1979, and draws around 100,000 visitors.

"Olga" and five other young Estonian directors have combined their works into one screening, which opens in cinemas on January 24. The trailer can be seen here.
