The Singing Revolution

Unknown - 2008
Rate this:
Estonia's coveted position between Europe and Russia has lured wave after wave of occupiers. The nation's darkest chapter, though, dawned in 1939 with the arrival of the Soviets. It seemed this time that the Estonian nation might vanish completely; yet the Estonians waited, and fought, and sang--and ultimately, survived. The Singing Revolution narrates the dramatic story of this tiny nation's struggle for independence, illuminating how the Estonians kept their identity alive through a rich tradition of song. Here, people have joined voices for centuries, and their Laulupidu-- an immense song festival--offered glimmers of Estonian culture in even the bleakest periods. When the Soviet nation finally began to crumble in the 1980s, the Estonians saw their opportunity: free speech became song, and song became a soaring anthem of independence.
