Queensland Premiere.

The first documentary by an Estonian director to compete and win at Sundance, Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a deeply moving and powerful film. 

Filmed almost as if it were a Vermeer or Rembrandt painting, Smoke Sauna Sisterhood follows the smoke sauna tradition in southern Estonia, listed by UNESCO, a tradition that connects family and friends in a place of peace and contemplation. In the space, tranquillity and darkness of the smoke sauna, women share their innermost secrets and experiences. Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a life affirming journey and exploration of culture and tradition.
