'To Light' (2015) van Nora Särak, Estland

The short documentary To Light by Nora Särak (Estonia/Latvia, 2015) shows the close ties between an motehr and son in Pechora, now a Russian city but once part of Estonia. What exactly is the difference between a film and a novel? How can watching films well help you to read novels? What can a film do that a book can't? Lidewijde Paris gave you some tips beforehand on what to watch for. After the screening she discussed the film and its relation towards Winternachten festival's theme Who Wants to Live Forever?
