DocFridays: From the East

From the East
Directed by Chantal Akerman
Running time: 110 minutes
1993

A beautiful and somber ride through Eastern Europe. Simple, stark and incredibly personal and cold in the same breath.

I hadn’t watched this film in several years, but re-watching it this past week, it was startling how much of the imagery is shared with my yet-to-be-completed film, The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga.

Available on DVD from Icarus Films.
