In the darkness of a smoke sauna, women share their innermost secrets and intimate experiences, regaining their strength through a sense of communion. Anna Hints’ revelatory documentary has won awards and plaudits at festivals worldwide. Deeply moving and profoundly intimate, funny and wrenchingly emotional, it explores trauma, healing, and community in the smoke saunas of Estonia. There, women gather to shed their clothes and expose their truest selves, chatting about topics ranging from their day-to-day lives to their most secret and painful experiences. Featuring honest, humane images reminiscent of a Rembrandt painting, and an authentic voice born of Hints’ own Estonian heritage, Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a miraculous, otherworldly film and a truly extraordinary experience.
