Guardian picks Estonian documentary to list of best theater documentaries
The Guardian included the Estonian film "Aasta täis draamat" (A Year Full of Drama) in a list of the "10 great documentaries about theater".
Stage editor and writer Chris Wiegand chose Marta Pulk's documentary "Aasta täis draamat" (A Year Full of Drama) about a woman who paid to watch and write about every new theater production in Estonia for a year.
Wiegand said it is easy to relate to the main character Allissja.
"From the glumness of sitting through a comedy that everyone but you finds funny to the jolt you get from seeing a character whose personal dilemmas mirror your own," he wrote and added that Pulk gives an insight to Estonia's theater scene.
In 2017, Kinoteater advertised a job offer to find a person who has never been to the theater who would watch all new productions in 2018. From 450 candidates, a 21-year-old Allisja-Elisabet was chosen. The film premiered in 2019.
