About Post-Socialist Screenings

After 1989, people in post-socialist countries faced extensive systemic changes on the economic and political levels, which affected their public and private lives. Sometimes the borders in-between were swept away relentlessly, leaving people behind. The film screenings shown at ILOS this autumn are about people who lived through socialism, and those who are trying to find their place and their identity in post-socialist society.

The Post-Socialist Screenings are organized by Anastasia K. Røen and Mónika Dánél, with the support of Centre for Slavic and Easter European Studies, project Probing the Boundaries of the (Trans)National and Elisa Storchi and Randi Cathinka Neverdal from University of Oslo Library.
