The New East in film

The films in this programme, many of which have been picked directly from the international film festival circuit and will be being screened in the UK for the first time, focus on authentic, personal storytelling by emerging and established filmmakers. What unites them is an attempt to navigate the ‘post-socialist’ or ‘post-Soviet’ space in which they are situated, and the history which they have inherited and which still haunts any attempt at self-identification.
