Move East Movie
Eastern European cinema has been awakening from the post-communist lethargy, boldly offering interesting alternatives to western European, Asian or American cinema. It brings fresh quality but also reveals new perspectives on the problems of the contemporary world, the perception of borders or daily life. The cinematic take on our Eastern neighbours, especially countries of the Caucasus or Moldova, 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 in 2014, we wanted to awaken the awareness of cinephiles and show the everyday lives of the residents of Eastern Partnership countries as well as the interests of film circles in those countries. We want to focus on new movies which offer the most up-to-date portrayal of the countries and give an idea about the condition of their respective cinemas.
