Looking for America

The United States According to Independent Filmmakers | 7 October - 21 December 2016

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? 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'.
