what's it like to long for a place you've always wanted to leave?


hajnal has never known anything but the cross-generational desire to leave their home for a better life in the west. as their national identity merges with an atmosphere of hopelessness and marginalisation, they vow to leave it all behind and not only start a new life but become a new person in britain. dogged by the fragments of who they once were, hajnal must learn to reconcile their fear of ostracisation with their need for authenticity. 


soviet fantasia is a love letter to queer eastern europeans, who might struggle to connect with their home in the face of a persistent attack on their human rights. the film is a declaration that we not only exist, but we can also lay claim to our national heritage while being proud of who we are.

soviet fantasia was commissioned by exeter phoenix
