On 30 September Tatiana Fiodorova gives an introduction into her research which she did during her residency in Badgast. Tatiana Fiodorova is a media-artist / curator from Chisinau, Moldova. In her childhood Fiodorova has spend many summers on the coast of the Black Sea where she took long walks along the coastline. Since that time, much has changed. When Moldova was still part of the Soviet Union it had a direct connection with the sea. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Moldova lost its sea.
The screening program focusses on performances, video art and animations made by well-known and emerging artists and filmmakers from Post-Soviet countries. The films and video works are visually connected to the sea, the coast or in general the notion of water. In most of the works the authors tackle an underlaying political, environmental or philosophical issue.
Filmmakers in the program: Oleg Kulik (Russia), Vladimir Logutov (Russia), Veaceslav Druta (Moldova), Ghenadie Popescu (Moldova), Umida Ahmedova and Oleg Karpov (Uzbekistan), Vyacheslav Akhunov (Uzbekistan), Alexander Ugai (Kazakhstan), Mykola Ridnyi (Ukraine), Tetyana Goryushina (Ukraine), Mihail Gulin (Belorus), Tonea Slobodcikova (Belorus), Sabina Shikhlinskaya (Azerbaijan), Ulan Djaparov(Kyrgyzstan), Philip Rayhmut (Germany),Ali Hasanov (Azerbaijan), Yulia Drobova (Uzbekistan), Oleg Tcherny (Belorus), Krišs Salmanis (Latvia ), Flo Kasearu in collaboration with Riina Maidrem Oksanan Tralla, Marianne Manni, Veronoka Vallimae.

The cultural exchange project ‘Now Wakes The Sea’ started in 2012 with the exchange of The Netherlands and Turkey in the context of NLTR400.
