Screening of Estonia (NO)

What caused one of the worst maritime disasters of the 20th century?


28. September.

Time: 16:00 - 21:00


On 28 September 1994, the cruise ferry MS Estonia sank in the cold Baltic Sea. The disaster claimed 852 lives, making it one of the worst maritime disasters in peacetime. For many years, a lack of firm evidence in the official report led to multiple conspiracy theories and questions about the real cause of the sinking of the ship. 

"Estonia: the discovery that changes everything" is a documentary series released in 2020, that puts new facts on the table. The series feature interviews with the survivors, findings of several serious inconsistencies in the official investigation, and an in-depth analysis of other causes of the sinking. The documentary makers don't speculate and come to conclusions, but they have undeniably succeeded in raising strong doubts about the official report. The new findings are serious enough for the Estonian government to announce a new "technical investigation". Will the survivors and victim's relatives finally be served justice?


All five episodes of the documentary will be screened. 

The episodes will start every full hour:
16.00 E01 The Disaster
17.00 E02 Everyone Shall Be Salvaged
18.00 E03 There Is Something Wrong
19.00 E04 Secrets At The Bottom Of The Sea
20.00 E05 The Dive

Free entry.
