Smoke Sauna Sisterhood

Women share their innermost secrets and intimate experiences inside an Estonian smoke sauna.

In the darkness of smoke sauna, women share their innermost secrets and intimate experiences. Through a sense of communion, women wash off the shame trapped in their bodies and regain their strength.

Smoke Sauna Sisterhood was selected as the Estonian entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards.

"Smoke Sauna Sisterhood is a window into an enviable cultural practice of solidarity, as the safe communal space provides a place for gossip and laughter as well as the expression of pain." -Little White Lies

"It’s an intense watch; at times infectiously hilarious, at others wrenchingly sad. For the film’s brief running time, there’s an emotional osmosis at play, in both sauna and cinema alike." -The Observer 

"With its traditions captured in delicate, sweaty vignettes by filmmaker Anna Hints, Smoke Sauna Sisterhood’s anecdotes fill your lungs and engulf you, until its women’s secrets drip down your body." -Paste Magazine
