Agnieszka Elbanowska | Poland | 16
In the small, central Polish town of Aleksandrów Kujawski, the director of the local culture center announces a competition. The theme...a creative presentation of your personal patriotic attitude. Entrants are free to demonstrate their creativity in whatever form they like; in song, recitation or gesture, by giving a speech or staging their piece. Anything goes. There’s just one requirement; entrants may only present their own, original work. The eleventh day of the eleventh month arrives...Poland’s Independence Day. And on this very day, the jury, consisting of the director, the mayor, a priest and a local poetess, will select the region’s number one patriot.
Our New President
Maxim Pozdorovkin | USA | 78
The story of Donald Trump's election told entirely through Russian propaganda. By turns horrifying and hilarious, the film is a satirical portrait of Russian meddling in the 2016 election that reveals an empire of fake news and the tactics of modern day information warfare.
The Eastern Blokhedz
Ever wonder what Boris & Natasha danced to on Friday nights after grappling with moose and squirrel? Wonder no more! The air will be filled with the sounds of Ordjonikidze guitars, Topaz electric organs and Electron 110 amplifiers as we bring you the dance music of the 1960's Soviet Union.
