In the extensive programme, Eye sets off on a journey in the company of more unconventional American filmmakers from the world of independent film. In December, the programme focuses on films of Black filmmakers and 'queer cinema'.

This autumn Eye is taking an inquisitive look at the United States. How does the age-old ideal of a ‘land of the free and home of the brave’ relate to the difficult reality of today?
