Just a few kilometres east from the European Union border, right between Moldova and Ukraine, lies Pridniestrovian Moldovan Republic /PMR/. Thin strip of a land on the left bank of the Nistru river with 518 000 citizens isn´t recognized by any other country. On this officially non-existing territory has never been shot a professional film. Framed by the time of presidential election, “Fortress” focuses on a couple of characters being stuck in this geo-political gap, in between European Union and Russia, in between capitalist present and soviet past, crime and decency, decadence and hope for change.
