Published: May 28, 2018| 12:18 PM

This year’s East of the West competition is dominated by a strong female element, with seven of the twelve films directed by women. One of them is Czech director Beata Parkanová with her debut Moments – a sensitive depiction of the pitfalls of family life. The second Czech film in this section is Tomáš Pavlíček’s comedy Bear with Us. The eleven debut films include Hungarian director László Csuja’s Blossom Valley – an ironic punk road movie about an odd couple on the run, the Iranian film Amir about life in contemporary Iran, or Via Carpatia, the debut film by Polish director Klara Kochańska, winner of a student Oscar, co-directed by Kasper Bajon.
