Abstract: The Edge of Chaos is a Documentary research Film. The concept of the film combines our two areas of expertise and focus as students; Geopolitics and Filmmaking. The Edge of Chaos as a concept is a road trip documentary that follows us and our crew as we travel along Europe's Eastern Border with Russia. We would travel through countries such Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. In these countries, we would explore the lasting impact of the Soviet Union, and the modern- day impact of the Russian Federation. In addition to that, we would like to examine the individual cultures of these countries in an attempt to explain, understand, and contrast them in an effort to combat the stigma that all Eastern European countries are inherently 'Russian.'
