"Film before a film -
a period of time for a suicide victim"
Descriptive Line – suicide metaphor; meta-forms; reasons; after-effects; the given things in Baltic countries, interjecting the story of perspective young
Estonian artist, "Laur Tiidemann", creation, adventure and tragic death by self-immolation story as a motif for making a solid composition; at the same moment unifying the medias of a film documentaries and acting.

Usage of goods, things…people. The forms of chronic suicides, (the dependences) alcoholism, narcotics, gambling, smoking, modified food products “in usage”, manias, obsessions of being in charge and having money, megalomania and sex-mania. (After-effects: AIDS, Hepatitis A, B, C, Tuberculosis and others…)
