About Before-After Estonia 1994
Before-After is Sveriges Radio Drama’s audio drama initiative about historical turning points in Sweden, where society has gone from a before to an after. Before-After Estonia 1994 is about the sinking of the passenger ferry Estonia and depicts three different timelines, all based on the disaster when the ship sank. A track takes place in 1994 and follows colleagues Eva and Kristin from the time they check in at M / S Estonia with tax-free shopping and a flirtatious bar hangout until the disaster is suddenly a fact.
The second track, which takes place shortly after the sinking, follows Mikael’s mourning work after Mrs Kristin’s death, his isolation, visits to the relatives’ group and finally, his attempt to dive to Estonia’s wreck on the shores of the Baltic Sea.
Today, Felix starts “Estonia Pod” where he interviews experts, conspiracy theorists and relatives. A project that makes him confront both his conscience and his well-meaning but critical journalist father.
