Eco-espionage thriller The East was released in UK cinemas this weekend – the second critically acclaimed movie from director Zal Batmanglij. He co-wrote the script with lead star Brit Marling, who portrays an intelligence agent sent to infiltrate an anarchist group led by Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page.

The Upcoming magazine sent me for a chat with the filmmaker to learn more about the unusual inspiration behind the film. Watch the video here.
