"Variety" Names Estonian Director Among Those to Watch in 2020

"Variety" magazine has unveiled its sixth edition of ten Europeans to watch, "spotlighting ten rising talents from across the continent, who are poised for breakthroughs in 2020". The selection includes emerging actors, directors, writers and producers, with Estonian filmmaker Tanel Toom among them.


Toom directed and wrote the Oscar shortlisted film “Truth and Justice.”

"On January 16, 2020, we started off a new year in our Distinguished Speaker Series with His Excellency Jonatan Vseviov, Ambassador of Estonia to the United States of America," The Columbia World Affairs Council of South Carolina announced.


Epp-Karike Sonin.


Epp-Karike Sonin always amazes, inspires and delights us — especially on January 11 when she beautifully performed at the dedication of the "Epp Sonin Music Room"  at the Follen Church in Lexington, Massachusetts.  

Her lovely lyric soprano captivated everyone. The spacious room, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and cathedral ceiling, was filled to capacity. The overflow audience watched the program being streamed to monitors to other church function rooms.

As one of its main missions, the Estonian American National Council (EANC) tracks legislation pertaining to Estonia, the Baltic nations, and the broader central and east European region, and advocates for its support from Members of Congress in mee-tings and events with lawmakers and their staff on Capitol Hill. 


EANC works with the Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) and our Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) partner organizations to choose the bills and resolutions most important to the region and coordinate our messages and resources to have the strongest impact possible.  


Make plans to join us next month to celebrate the 102th anniversary of Estonian's independence!  

We look forward to welcoming the multi-talented Valter Soosalu, who will speak on the topic of musical life in Estonia and perform favorite musical selections from through the years.

President Kersti Kaljulaid Arrives in Antarctica
President Kersti Kaljulaid reached King George Island in Antarctica on January 21 making her the first Estonian head of state to visit the continent. Kaljulaid visited several science stations and participated in events commemorating the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica, or its ice shelf, by Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen, a Captain in the Imperial Russian Navy at the time, and a Baltic German native of Saaremaa. The Estonian-led expedition on the 24-metre Dutch-built ketch the "Admiral Bellingshausen" to retrace the explorer's journey 200 years ago, departed from Tallinn in July 2019 and arrived in Antarctica earlier this month.

Ei tea kuhu viivad mind saatuse tiivad,
ja maha jäävad kodumaa rannad ja liivad.


Tens of thousands fled  Soviet terrorism as it swept into Estonia, and there are an equal number of stories, and memories, of the dangers of their journey to freedom. Sadly, few of those stories have been written down, to remind the latter generations what their antecedents chose to risk so that they could live in a free country, whichever one they chose to settle in.

I have written mine, which I have titled “Against All Odds”. It’s actually a trilogy: our escape, our stay in Sweden, and our departure from there in 1948, on a 72-foot old fishing trawler with 69 people; a journey of 59 days, surviving two storms, that nearly ended our journey.

If interested I will forward it. My email is  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
