From the East

Chantal Akerman, Belgium, France, Portugal, 1993, 107'

Film retraces a journey from the end of summer to deepest winter, from East Germany, across Poland and the Baltics, to Moscow. It is a voyage Chantal Akerman wanted to make shortly after the collapse of the Soviet bloc “before it was too late”, reconstructing her impressions in the manner of a documentary on the border of fiction.
