From Estonian filmmaker Rainer Sarnet comes award-winning surrealist fantasy/drama November.
In this tale of love and survival in 19th century Estonia, peasant girl Liina longs for village boy Hans – but Hans is inexplicably infatuated by a visiting German baroness. When Liina sets out to win Hans’ love, things grow incredibly complicated in this dark, harsh landscape where spirits, werewolves, plagues, and the devil himself converge, where thievery is rampant, and where souls are highly regarded – but come quite cheap.
Highlighted by mesmerizing black-and-white cinematography by Mart Taniel – winner of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival Best Cinematography award – November is a dark and brilliant fairy tale that marks the arrival of a daring new visionary filmmaker. As Nick Schager of The Daily Beast summarized, “November is all-caps CRAZY in the best, funniest, most exhilarating way possible. A mere description cannot, I recognize, do its out-there-ness true justice.”

“This midnight-movie classic in the making uses ancient Estonian folk tales to create something shockingly unexpected. Both gravely serious and demonically funny, it’s meant to knock audiences off balance. Mission accomplished.”– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Suffused with sorcery and silvery light, “November,” written and directed by Rainer Sarnet, is a bizarre Estonian love story – a mishmash of folklore, farm animals and scabrous fun – in which beauty and ugliness fight to the death.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
“A deeply peculiar folklore-informed picture in which unrequited love is more troubling than the plague, the Devil and a forest full of ghosts.” – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
