“You should bear firmly in mind that of all the arts, cinema is the most important to us.” Many of our compatriots – emigrants of the first wave whose contribution to the Dream Factory is difficult to overestimate – could bravely endorse this famous Leninist expression.

Although it might seem otherwise at first glance, in this case there is no contradiction. A diaspora is not only a certain ethnic and demographic community, but above all it is a model of worldly behavior and a unified system of values. “A diaspora is distinctive cultural community built on the basis of a common understanding of the...
