My research lies at the intersection of memory studies and film theory. I am studying the representations of World War II and Soviet past in post-1990 Baltic films. My dissertation explores Baltic deportation dramas that were made in the previous decade and that are part of the “search for recognition” memory paradigm, and films that focus on “historical blind spots”, i.e. topics and events that have not received widespread attention in the memory culture of the Baltics. I am interested in what kind of devices and means these films use to make the Baltic past comprehensible for audiences abroad, and what kind of viewer engagements these films promote.
