“Jakop’s Dream” (“Jakopi unõnägo”) is a documentary/music video about the life in Võrumaa, Southern edge of Estonia through the eyes of a director Anna Hints. It’s filmed very close to my home in Viitina, the song lyrics also originate from the same filming locations. Carving a cross onto a tree to the one who departed is an old and unique local custom. In this video you also see the visuals of lamenting. This particular cross in the video is very fresh, made for my father. So the lamenting in the video was born in the moment and sang to him.
I’m most thankful for her “eyes” and to my neighbour Ahto (playing Jakop), who let us look into his life and took the filming as it’s natural thing to happen every day (although it was his first time to be filmed). I bow to the coolest filming crew and all the supporters and kickstarters!
