Director Zal Batmanglij and leading lady Brit Marling spent two months practicing freeganism before co-writing The East, a thriller film based loosely on their experience of hopping trains, sleeping on rooftops and eating out of dumpsters in a rejection of the money-based economy.

Premiered at Sundance, this genre-bending film brings together elements from anarchist culture and political thriller movies to create a suspenseful espionage film with sociopolitical undertones. Along with Marling, the impressive cast features Julia Ormond, Patricia Clarkson, Jason Ritter, Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgård.
