SECTION: Feature Film Competition
The best productions from Central and Eastern Europe.
Stories as diverse as Eastern Europe, ranging from Ukrainian family tragedies on speed to contemplative end-of-time reflections from Azerbaijan and coming-of-age films between Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Securitate.
Between Polish small-town slackers, Belarusian political activists against their will and a Romanian policeman on the road to the provinces. Survival strategies before and after the changes of times, surprising and overwhelming things between the Baltic coast and the Pannonian plain.
