Lumi punasel lagedal

Paradise Behind the FenceLumi punasel lagedal / Schnee auf dem roten Hügel

Documentary, Estonia / Austria 2017, 46 Min., russ., estn. OV, engl. st

The village of Estosadok, founded by Estonian settlers near Sochi not far from the Russian Black Sea Coast, boasts fertile soil, an excellent climate, and a breathtaking mountain panorama. A small community of Estonian origin lives in this glorious and peaceful corner of the world – until 2007, when Russia decides to hold the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Now a section of the village has to give way to a ski jump. Aljona Sur ikova visited Estosadok and its residents repeatedly over the course of six years, during which time they hope they can hold onto their homes and their fruit trees. Instead, they must stand idly by while business people and the government ruthlessly develop the surroundings. Natural features are indiscriminately destroyed. The courses of streams are changed; highways and train lines are built; hotels and housing are erected. In the end, Estosadok is part of a lifeless ski resort.
