1944 (Film Movement) was Estonia’s 2016 official Academy Award entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category. 1944 is a World War II drama about the citizens of this small Baltic nation who were turned against each other by rival superpowers. The events in the film depict the bitter aftermath of five years of invasion and occupation. First seized by Soviet Russia, then by Nazi Germany, Estonia ended up with more than 50,000 men forced to fight for the Red Army and over 70,000 for the German military.
