Film Details

Ohio premiere!


Romania | 2016 | Cristi Puiu


The new film from the director of The Death of Mr. Lazarescu is an intimate family epic in which a large Romanian clan gathers at an apartment for a ritual dinner and memorial service 40 days after the death of the patriarch. As siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins arrive and overflow into various rooms, the stage is set for a multiplicity of mini-dramas and arguments (about everything from 9/11 conspiracy theories to Romania’s Communist past)—especially since they all can’t eat until the priest arrives, and he is late. This rigorous, darkly comic work, one of the most accomplished and acclaimed films at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, is not distributed in the U.S., so don’t miss this chance to see it in a copy imported from Europe. “A masterful portrait of the contemporary Romanian middle-class but also a whole set of smart, perceptive reflections on the relativity of truth, on the failings of memory, the interpretation of history, the significance of religion and much more.” –Screen Int’l. Ohio premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 173 min.

Special admission $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
