Tallinn Black Nights Adds Series and World Premieres to Festival Lineup

Estonian festival Tallinn Black Nights has added a trio of international TV shows to its lineup. Buzzy German drama “Babylon Berlin,” Russian series “Gogol,” which had a theatrical release in Russia, and “Chernobyl: Zone of Exclusion” will be part of the festival.

The full Black Nights lineup will be unveiled Friday, with U.S. movies including “New Money,” “Newly Single,” and “Dominion” showing alongside a selection from across Europe and Asia.

There will be 233 films, with 20 world premieres. These include Estonian film “The Manslayer/The Virgin/The Shadow,” “Green Cats” from Estonian director Andres Puustusmaa, and “River’s Edge,” a look at Chinese society from Chinese auteur Wang Chao.

Jason B. Kohl’s “New Money” will also have its world premiere in Tallinn. It follows a woman, played by Louisa Krause (“Billions”), who kidnaps her father after he cuts her out of his will.

Black comedy “Newly Single” tells the story of a film director back on the dating scene in L.A., and “Dominion” focuses on the last days of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Both films are in the official selection at Black Nights.

Canadian filmmaker Denis Cote will also be in town with his new feature documentary, “A Skin So Soft,” about the world of bodybuilding.

Other movies in the program include “The Shape of Water,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “The Florida Project,” and “Battle of the Sexes.”

The Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival runs from Nov. 17 to Dec. 3.
