Blending a Cold War thriller and a romantic tale of forbidden queer love, director Peeter Rebane’s FIREBIRD tells a based-on-a-true-story of two Estonian pilots in the Soviet Air Force pursuing an illegal affair amidst a torrid love triangle that threatens their safety, their careers, and their relationship with a childhood friend.

We are honored to share Peeter Rebane's gripping historical drama Firebird, with short film I am Max by Lukas Kacinauskas.

I Was Max

It’s a short road film where Max goes on a date with another guy Tadas whom he met online. Max feels uncomfortable and timid so Tadas decides to act on his own initiative. Eventually Max breaks down and reveals his true identity.
