Little known outside the former Soviet bloc, Estonian cinematographer and director Jüri Sillart (1943-2011) remains one of the most noted and influential film talents ever to emerge from Eastern Europe. Told through the recollections of his family, colleagues and students, “The Moon Hunter” examines the evolution of Sillart’s art as he traversed the difficult terrain of the Soviet film industry.
