Director Statement


John F Kennedy has always had a special place in the hearts of Estonians. Indeed – as he became the president of the US, many people in Tallinn recognized him from the happy pre-war days. JFK recalled those days fondly in his address to the Estonian émigrés, who had lobbied for his election. Behind the iron curtain, the KGB remained very attentive towards a young man, who was born nine months after JFK’s visit and who was called Jaak – Estonian for Jack. He died young – like all the Kennedy men... This was a story begging to be filmed and I hope it will be considered my tribute to a great man who was adamant the US would never recognize the Soviet occupation of my country.
