TALLINN: Estonian director Peeter Rebane started shooting his first feature film Firebird, starring Tom Prior, at the end of September 2018. Shooting will last throughout October mostly in the northeastern part of Estonia, Ida-Virumaa.

Firebird is a Cold War thriller. The story takes place in the 1970’s Soviet Air Force and follows a forbidden love triangle between Sergey (Tom Prior), Luisa (Diana Pozharskaya) and Roman (Oleg Zagorodnii). The film’s aim is to show how love doesn’t ask about time or gender and can bloom even in the toughest of times.

The project has an international cast. Rebane co-wrote the script with film’s leading actor Tom Prior. The film is produced by two UK-based companies, No Reservations Entertainment and The Factory with producer Brigita Rozenbrika. Several Estonians are also part of the project, including composer Imre Sooäär and cinematographer Mait Mäekivi.

The film was supported by the Estonian Film Institute through the cash rebate programme with 455 562 EUR.
