Autumn Ball

  • Synopsis
  • Director's Biography


How close can we get to others? Is it possible to live a life completely devoid of love? Can someone , who has experienced what a fragile state of affairs shared happiness is, trust another again? What can be said about life anyway? 

Some chosen moments from the life of six people living in a huge sprawling conurbation of tower blocks built during the soviet era. The gently stylised and indifferent world of "Autumn Ball" is steadily advancing towards winter and will not give any answers to these questions. What this world can demonstrate though is the possibility for laughter even there, where hope has long since become a sparse commodity. 



Veiko Õunpuu (1972) has been a worker, a carpet salesman, a university dropout on three different occasions, a backbacker, a regular writer for the column In The Air in the cutural magazine Areen in weekly newspaper Eesti Ekspress and a painter. In 2006 he founded production company Homeless Bob Poduction and directed his first short film Empty. His first feature film Autumn Ball was awarded „Orrizonti Prize“ for new cinema in Venice Film Festival 2007. He just released his next feature project The Temptation of St. Tony.
