"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.
