Selection of ten films makes Parallels and Encounters a journey trough modern production of geographical, social and historical region of Eastern Europe. Selected films are particularly attractive for their extraordinary visual aesthetics that enabled authors to express deep emotions of their stories about human destinies. Eastern Europe has grown, due to its turbulent history, into almost mythological region with constantly interwoven past and present, leaving the future an uncertain category. The fragile human being, as the center of this turmoil, usually remains alone in the wind, concurrently being the strongest bastion of the eternal battle of good and evil.
