"In the Crosswind" (2014)
Film screening with introduction by Uve Poom

In the Crosswind

June 1941. Without warning, tens of thousands of people in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were removed from their homes. Without any sort of trial, men faced being sent to prison camps and women and children were deported to Siberia. The aim of this extraordinary operation – carried out on the orders of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin – was to purge the Baltic countries of their native inhabitants. Erna, happily married and the mother of a young daughter, is sent to Siberia. For her, time takes on another dimension. Fighting starvation and humiliation in inhuman conditions, her soul seeks and finds freedom in the letters she sends to her husband who has been sentenced to prison camp. Even so, the years in Siberia rob Erna of something much more precious than just her youth.

This renowned film is based on a true story and uses extraordinary visual techniques and language to tell the heart-wrenching tale of the fate of thousands of Estonians.

Uve Poom is the former CEO of the Unitas Foundation, an Estonian educational charity aimed at raising awareness of history and human rights in the 20th century. He is currently a Masters candidate at Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at Stanford University.
