Survival Kit 3 included in the Film Festival Rotterdam
Radio Engineering is an analytical video story about the Riga Radio Factory – once a model Soviet factory that provided its workers not only with social benefits, but also a powerful propaganda bastion. Eléonore de Montesquiou’s (France, Estonia, Germany) film was created in close cooperation with Agnese Lūse, Māra and Gaļina Traumane, Rihards Bražinskis and Ineta Sipunova. The film premiered at the festival Survival Kit 3 organised by the Contemporary Art Centre (LMC) in Riga in September 2011.
Eléonore de Montesquiou was born in Paris and is now living in Berlin and Tallinn, mostly working with a documentary approach and her work mostly focuses on integration, immigration and history reviewing in the former Soviet Union, especially in Estonia.
