The End of the Chain

The End of the Chain, "Keti lõpp"

Synopsis

Director

A secluded fast food joint next to an empty parking lot, where it’s good to go, because nobody recognizes you there. On a rainy autumnal day, people show up one after the other – all of them on the verge of a breakdown – or perhaps a breakthrough? The main character, Waitress, sees and absorbs it all. One by one – through their personal drama – the clients push the Waitress towards her own edge.

Priit Pääsuke

(b. 1975) graduated from the Tallinn University with BA in film directing in 2005. Currently he is graduating from a joint MA program in theatre and film directing – a collaboration between Drama School of Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and Baltic Film and Media School. Priit’s short fiction „Black Peter“ (2008) premiered at the 38th Tampere Film Festival and won 11 prizes from 22 festivals across the world; in 2015 he premiered his feature length documentary debut „Impromptu“ and in 2016 produced the feature film „Polar Boy“. His fiction feature debut „The End of The Chain“ premiered at the prominent Karlovy Vary International Film Festival – East of The West Competition Programme.
