Those Who Dare
Join us for the opening night of our Baltic Film Series! "Those Who Dare" is a movie that outlines the Baltic nations’ (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania’s) struggle for the restoration of their independence, from 1986-1991, Gorbachev's perestroika paving the way. The film recaptures the dramatic course of events in the Baltic capitals of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn in January 1991 when the Soviet military attempted to brutally suppress the independence movements.
Following this opening event, the Baltic Film Series will feature: "Dangerous Summer" (2000), "In the Crosswind" (2014), and "Land of Songs" (2014). Please see our events page for a full listing of films, event times and locations, and film synopses.
