The East ~ Production Stills

Based on the concepts of "Freeganism"  an anarchist group called "The East" is targeting a multinational corporate pharmaceutical that is causing deaths of their users due to the side effects of the medications.

Writer  Brit Marling ("After Earth," "The Sound of My Voice") and director Zal Batmanglij ("The Sound of My Voice") based the concepts behind their anarchist group 
on the idea of Freeganism and the idea to avoid spending money on products that exploit the world's resources, contribute to urban sprawl, treat workers unfairly, or disregard animal rights.

Here is what t is about :
The East, a suspenseful and provocative espionage thriller from acclaimed writer-director Zal Batmanglij and writer-actress Brit Marling, stars Marling as former FBI agent Sarah Moss.  Moss is starting a new career at Hiller Brood, an elite private intelligence firm that ruthlessly protects the interests of its A-list corporate clientele. Handpicked for a plum assignment by the company's head honcho, Sharon (Patricia Clarkson), Sarah goes deep undercover to infiltrate The East, an elusive anarchist collective seeking revenge against major corporations guilty of covering up criminal activity.   Determined, highly-trained and resourceful, Sarah soon ingratiates herself with the group, overcoming their initial suspicions and joining them on their next action or "jam." But living closely with the intensely committed members of The East, Sarah finds herself torn between her two worlds as she starts to connect with anarchist Benji (Alexander Skarsgård) and the rest of the collective, and awakens to the moral contradictions of her personal life.".
