Edgar Documentry - Global Indie Film Fest


Edgar Grünthal escaped Estonia in 1945, fleeing from German army inscription and Russian invaders. He sailed to Sweden, then immigrated to Canada, working as a seaman and handyman to make a living.

This documentary was not only made to serve as a memento of my grandfather, but was also meant to symbolize a larger story of European immigrants, during and after WW2.
