15-21 November 

Memory, A Season of European Documentaries

To celebrate the wealth and diversity of contemporary documentary films in Europe, selected cultural institutes and embassies in London and the European Commission Representation in the UK have collaborated on 'Memory', a six day festival from the 15 to 21 November.  The festival, now in its third year, will showcase the work of new and established directors from across the continent.
Communism and its fall is a strong theme in the festival. Through visiting the past and revealing often unseen archives, these remarkable works offer a unique opportunity to Londoners to rediscover history that is common to all of us, through various viewpoints.

Memory is the third joint project of the EUNIC London cluster (European Union National Institutes for Culture in London) which aims to improve and promote cultural diversity and understanding between European societies.

European Documentary Workshop 9 - 13 November

Ten recent graduates of leading European film schools will create five films on the theme of ‘The Fall of The Wall’. In collaboration with the London Film School and with the generous support of the European Commission Representation in the UK

With Extreme Cruelty (Po osobeno jestok nachin)
Bulgaria | 2006 | col | 58 mins | dir. Rosen Elezov

With Extreme Cruelty presents the sincere and moving confession of the well-known Bulgarian writer Svoboda Buchvarova.  It is the story of her trials and tribulations, personal metamorphoses culminating in her catharsis. Ideals and reality clash in her life, taking her to a world of antagonism and emotional standoffs, where she struggles to find reconciliation and peace with herself.
