ZONE is an experimental workshop combining creative documentary film-making with the elements of science fiction. The world famous Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky shot "Stalker" in Estonia and the film's principal character took people to the Zone to find out the inner secrets of their lives. The underground world of dark mine shafts and the overground mountains of ash are the source of inspiration to find the inner creative energy. The participants will leave with their own experimental short films of 3 to 5 minutes.
