      Pictures From the Old Country is the story of the filmmaker's quest to uncover the mysteries of her Slovak identity and heritage, after they were lost behind the Iron Curtain and her family's silence. As a young girl growing up during the Cold War, she is curious about the secret language her grandmother is speaking and the enigma that shrouds her past. Years later she embarks on a journey that crosses continents and generations - to discover Slovakia, why her grandmother came to America, and who she left behind.
      This award-winning film was shot entirely on location in Slovakia. ItÂ’s had numerous airings on PBS TV and played at conferences and universities across the U.S. and Central Europe. It had its west coast debut at the American Film Institute, L.A. and its east coast debut at the Slovak Embassy in Washington, D.C.
