"Chuck Norris vs Communism" will have its European Premiere in competition at the 69th edition of Edinburgh International Film Festival.
In 1980s Communist Romania, subversion of the government’s ideological censorship was quietly underway via the black-market import of thousands of Hollywood films. An underground VHS smuggling operation was secretly giving ordinary people a glimpse into life beyond the Iron Curtain; a world of fearless action stars Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Responsible for this videotheque resistance was a wealthy opportunistic hustler and an intrepid female translator, determined to bring the power of cinema to the people.
