Film review: ‘Lost in Karastan’ ★★

Coming to you from a newly autonomous republic somewhere in the vast plains of the Caucasus is a real oddity. Lost in Karastan – the latest offering from British filmmaker Ben Hopkins – is difficult to pin down. Modelling itself as a satirical black comedy interrogating the nature of creativity, art vs. love, and what constitutes national identity, Hopkins ventures into unknown Eastern European territory and gets completely lost.

Lost in Karastan makes an appearance in select UK cinemas from Friday 22nd January – visit CineVue here to read the full review!
