A recently published book dealing with the film landscape of East European countries delivers an exciting insight as well in film historical aspects as in recent cinematic works:

Anikó Imre: East European Cinemas. London & New York: Routledge, 2005


The latest volume in the AFI Film Readers series presents a long-overdue reassessment of East European cinemas from theoretical, psychoanalytic and gender perspectives. Charting the dramatic changes and the deep continuities that have characterized the cinemas of Eastern Europe in recent decades, the essays in "East European Cinema" question and revaluate such notions as the 'European', 'postcommunism' and 'national cinema'. The essays are arranged in three groups that target the key issues: an alternative to reductive understandings of East and Central European politics as they inform cinema; the transition from state-funded modernism to global, international cinema; and the key role of historiography in relation to East and Central European film.
