The Days that Confused


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Presented by the Estonian Ministry of Culture 

Estonia. Dir. Triin Ruumet. 2016, 105 mins. With Hendrik Toompere Jr, Juhan Ulfsak, Jaanika Arum. In Estonian with English subtitles. The raw, risk-taking feature debut from Triin Ruumet captures the feeling of being young, adrift, and drunk on the possibilities of life. It’s set during one summer in 1990s Estonia, where 27-year-old Allar wastes away his days drinking, partying, and cruising in his car. But after a near-death accident leaves him contemplating his life’s direction, Allar finds himself torn between the call of adult responsibility and the allure of reckless abandonment. Bursting with bold stylistic flourishes and spot-on period detail (particularly the propulsive pop soundtrack), The Days that Confused is a heady time capsule of Eastern Europe’s post-Soviet wilderness years.
