Fueled by independent spirit and passion for the cinema of south-east Europe, the team behind Los Angeles-based SEE Fest (South East European Film Festival) has announced its fifth annual showcase to take place at the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, and UCLA, from April 29 through May 3.
Some of the films slated for this year’s SEE Fest include stories that explore how to stay “Alive!” when confronted with ancient blood feuds (Albania), seeking “Bells, Threads & Miracles” between Muslims and Orthodox Christians (Greece), about people taking “A Step into the Darkness” of radical ideologies (Turkey) or remarkably enduring their fractured existence thanks to the subversive genius of Balkan humor in “Goodbye, How are you?” (Serbia).
The South East European Film Festival is the only festival in the United States devoted exclusively to south-east Europe. Its message is not only to show films but to educate about the South East Europe’s region, its troubled history, and cultural diversity.
