Back from Utopia. Human Rights and Cinema
in Post-Communist Societies

An International Conference sponsored by Columbia University’s East Central European Center, the University of Bucharest (Faculty of Political Sciences), and RCINY.

The two-day conference brings together academics, activists and filmmakers from Central and Eastern Europe who focus in their scientific and artistic endeavor on human rights after the fall of communism.

Political science and political philosophy sometimes fail to grasp the complex human aspects embedded in a society. Film can help compensate that. That is why the event combines theoretical discourse on post-communism with its illustration by means of cinematographic discourse.
