Manufacturer Description

From Chantal Akerman comes a cinematic journey through Eastern Europe, composed of faces, landscapes, cities, and ordinary lives fascinating and unforgettable.

FROM THE EAST (D Est) retraces a travel 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.

By filming "everything that touched me" Akerman sifts through and fixes upon sounds and images as she follows the thread of this subjective crossing. Without dialogue or commentary, but with a soundtrack rich in the tones, noises and voices of these lands, FROM THE EAST is a cinematographic elegy.

Bonus! A booklet with Chantal Akerman's essay On D'Est.
