Two young women become embroiled in their families' blood feud in the Polish drama Eastern. Available to rent on QFT Player.
In a dystopian world regulated by an inexorable, patriarchal code, the Nowak and Kowalski families have been embroiled in a vendetta for years. When the Nowaks’ son dies at the hand of Klara Kowalska (Paulina Krzyzanska), his sister, Ewa (Maja Pankiewicz), is faced with a choice between carrying out revenge in the name of honour on the one hand and her own life and freedom on the other.
Described as "a Western in the Wild East", this is a no-holds-barred thriller looking at how authority figures instrumentalise traditional values in order to serve their own interests.
