Disco & Atomic War tells the story of a strange kind of information war in the mid 1980's in Estonia, where a repressive totalitarian regime which controlled all aspects of Estonian life stands face to face with the heroes of popular culture. And it loses. Western popular culture had an incomparable role shaping Soviet children's world-views in those days - in ways that now seem slightly odd. Finnish television was a window to a world of dreams that the authorities could not block in any way. Though Finnish channels were banned, many households found some way to access the forbidden fruit. Disco and Atomic War offers its own version of recent history, mixing spy games into a human tragicomedy. An entertaining, controversial and provocative documentary, shown and winning awards at numerous film festivals worldwide.
