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, his sister, Ewa, 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.

Piotr Adamski’s debut feature Eastern revisits tropes of the Western genre, and draws on an old Albanian rule to address Poland’s contemporary political landscape and its conservative tendencies. The director discusses his inspiration, filmmaking process and more in our blog.
