One World Echoes: Fortress + Q&A with director Lukáš Kokeš

Over twenty years after the collapse of the Soviet Union directors Klára Tasovská and Lukáš Kokeš travel back in time on their visit to the unrecognised Pridnestrovian Moldovian Republic. A separatist region within Moldova, with its own passports, an elected president and a legal system. This Open City Preview Screening will be followed by a Q&A session with director Lukáš Kokeš.

 

UK PREMIERE

In Fortress Tasovská and Kokeš raise what is left of the iron curtain to give a fascinating peak into a country that technically does not exist.  They capture everyday life through portraits of ordinary people living in this geo-political gap, stuck between the European Union and Russia, between the present and the past, crime and decency, decadence and hope for change.

For twenty years president Igor Smirnov maintained Soviet-style propaganda and established an authoritative rule. Filmed during the 2011 presidential elections, Fortress is a sharp and darkly funny account, analysing the configuration of this ‘limbo-state’ and the practicalities of a regular life within it.

Directed by Klára Tasovská and Lukáš Kokeš
Duration: 70′
Year: 2012

Director Lukáš Kokeš will take in the Q&A session after the screening.

 

Tickets:  £10.00 available here
