1944 Brief Information

1944 is a 2015 Estonian war drama film directed by Elmo Nganen. The film first premiered in February 2015 in Berlin, Germany, before its release in Estonia and other Northern European countries. It was selected as the Estonian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards but it was not nominated.

In the context of the bloody physical conflicts of 1944, as the Soviet Union advances to recapture Estonia from its German occupiers, the film explores the mental conflicts of young Estonians. Some have volunteered or been conscripted into the German forces, most with little commitment to the Nazi regime. Others have volunteered or been conscripted into the Soviet forces, again with little commitment to the Communist regime. Whichever side wins will regard the other as traitors, liable to execution or deportation. Neither side offers the Estonians freedom.
