Move East Movie – Credenza


Credenza – dir. Valentyn Vasyanovych, 2013, runtime: 81 min.

The main protagonist is a humble intellectual Orest, a cellist at the Lviv Opera  who, much like any other musician, dreams of  performing concerts.  He finally gets the opportunity to leave to Vienna for training. It seems everything is going well when a rival emerges on the horizon.  He tries to discredit Orest and take his place. On top of that, the music academy where his son studies is attacked and his mother-in-law wants him to impregnate his wife’s sister. It seems too much is going on at the same time and Orest is left to smooth over all conflicts in one way or another.

MOVE EAST MOVIE - Eastern European Cinema has been awakening from  the post-communist lethargy and boldly offering interesting alternative to western European, Asian or American cinema. It brings fresh quality, but also reveals new perspectives on the problems of contemporary world, the perception of borders or daily life. The cinematic take on our Eastern neighbours, especially countries of the Caucasus, provides knowledge on the culture of those regions that still  remains little known to an average European. When we initiated the “Move East Movie” cycle last year, we wanted to awaken the awareness of cinephiles and show the everyday lives of the residents of the Eastern Partnership countries as well as the interests of film circles in those countries.
