The U.S. premiere of the film by Anna Ferens took place on 16 March in Chicago. Now the film is presented in various American cities.
The film "A Place to Stand" documents the fight against the communism in the 1980s from the perspective of the East and the West and the involvement of the European Parliament in the defense of human rights in the countries of the Soviet bloc.
Based on unpublished archival materials and interviews with members of the European Parliament, the film features interviews with democracy activists throughout the Eastern bloc. The production of the film was supported by European Network Remembrance and Solidarity.
