The Return of Memory Film Season

To mark our major autumn exhibition, The Return of Memory, we will be presenting a special season of contemporary cinema and artists from Russia, Eastern Europe and former Socialist territories. Together they explore the different legacies of the Russian Revolution – and all that followed in its wake – that are still felt today across the countries of the ‘New East’.

Created and curated by The New Social and HOME.
