Fear and Fantasy in “Citizens of the Cosmos” and “Squere”

Still image from ANTON VIDOKLE’s

The film program “Squere,” at this year’s Images Festival in Toronto, marked the Canadian premieres of Anton Vidokle’s Citizens of the Cosmos (2019) and Karolina Breguła’s Squere (2017). Screened together, the two films formed an enjoyable and thought-provoking dialogue centered on linkages between Eastern Europe and East Asia, revealing the push and pull between present and past (or future) in their respective sociopolitical spheres.
