A dramatic and moving film about the artistic and personal life of legendary Estonian singer Georg Ots. With extraordinary talent and unique timbre, Georg is still remembered today by audiences in Russia and Finland, but he never reached the world’s great opera stages. The film uses interview material from Ots’ second wife Asta Ots to provide context and insight. GEORG is the story of an artist’s fate shaped by passion, politics, love, and family. English subtitles.
