Tallinn Black Nights Film Fest


19 November - 5 December 2010, Tallinn, Estonia

The Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, held in the historic city of Tallinn, Estonia is one of the largest and most prestigious film events in Eastern Europe. This year's 14th edition runs from 19 November to 5 December, where the Festival will screen over 300 films, host several professional sidebar events and also serve as the venue for the European Film Awards on 4 December.


Soviet Tours: guaranteed Interrogation in the prisons...

Soviet militia meets you at the harbour or airport and checks for the documents and passports of the tourists. He makes the alignment and suddenly he finds those 3-4 tourists who don't have visa. This is the reason to take the whole group to the interrogation in Soviet style prison.


















The group goes to the Soviet bus where militia is making the sightseeing tour. On the way to prison, the Soviet bus will be broken but finally they make the way to prison that lies on 4 hectares beside Tallinn Bay. There is unique Soviet interior where walls still tell you the depressive stories of torture, harsh life and inhumanity during Soviet era.

The suspicious tourists go through the medical examination, photo - and fingerprint session. The participants learn more about the lifestyle of Soviet prisoner. Nobody has ever escaped from this prison. Some journalists have said that it's better than Alcatraz. .

The 3-4 tourists are put in a cell and other need to redeem them by answering the sly questions, doing some treasure hunt ing or giving valuable Marlboro cigarettes to the greedy Soviet bureaucrats. Finally Soviet patriotism breaks down and Soviets change their tone of voice. On the way back, militia will sing some Soviet songs and offer lots of soviet vodka. Viva Friendship!

There are maximum 22 seats in the bus.

This is fun. I witnessed the whole interrogation during my stay at Tallinn Black Night Festival.
