The first ever film in Setu – an ethnic minority of Southeast Estonia recounts the legend of Hilana Taarka. Born to poverty in 1856, she always stood out and gained fame by the power of her singing – but never won the love of her native community. Her talent was discovered by the folk revivalist movement, she became the embodiment of the Setu, and of Estonian identity rooted in singing, she died rejected still. Get a fill of the beauty and spirit of Estonian folk live in Akvárium at 8.30 pm, at the Sounds and Stories from Ruhnu Island gig.
The programme is supported by Estonian Institut.
