Special screening of "Keepers of the Loom" Documentary
April 27, 2015 at 6:00 pm
Cleveland State University
Main Classroom Auditorium
1899 East 22nd Street, Cleveland

Free and open to the general public

"Keepers of the Loom" is a feature-length film that tells the story of the skills and talent of the Estonian women of the 1944 Baltic Diaspora. Fleeing the invading Russians in the fall of 1944, they passionately maintained their cultural identity through making their folk arts, textiles and clothing.

Leaving Estonia, often with nothing but the clothes on their backs, those remarkable women brought the rich heritage of Estonian folk costumes to their new homes in the Western world. This film preserves the Estonian community story and tells the broader human story through the voices of their mothers and grandmothers.

Meet the film-makers Reet Mae and Tom Mae at the Q&A, enjoy coffee and Kringle.
This documentary film is by MAE Productions Inc. Visit to view the "trailer."
