Central European Films at the Logan Center

Artists, Amateurs, Alternative Spaces:Experimental Cinema in Eastern Europe 1960-1990

Friday, Oct 23, 7pm            

Dating from the postwar period to the last decades of Communism in Eastern Europe, this screening on collectives and art communities features film shorts made by artists, who, despite restrictions, produced independent and experimental works that offer highly subjective glimpses into the lives of Eastern Bloc filmmakers.
