  • The images of the fall of the Berlin Wall and of other key events of the dissolution of the Soviet Union – among the first experiences of “instant history” – have contributed to producing an imagery that has spread widely and become familiar also among the younger generations. Over the years, cinema has grafted numerous narratives and reconstructions onto this imagery, but only recently have some Eastern European directors began to reinterpret the historical period in question. Above all with films that tell stories – and a History – never seen before. Thirty years after the end of the Cold War, this study aims to explore the relationship between individual memory and media images, reflecting on the role of cinematographic art as a device for representing history, but also on the importance of the archive as a repository of material and cultural heritage, with the aim of providing tools for teaching history through contemporary cinema
