Cleveland theatrical premiere!
Romania | 2021 | Radu Jude
A real-life 17-year-old Romanian high school student whose anti-Ceausescu graffiti in the early 1980s brought the repressive regime down on him is the subject of this scathing film from the director of Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn, Aferim!, and I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians. Based on an experimental play that incorporates actual secret police transcripts, and full of fascinating clips from state-sponsored TV during the Communist era, Jude’s Brechtian movie demonstrates how propaganda and perverted language help to suppress freedom and individuality. “Expands the practice of nonfiction filmmaking into ingeniously imaginative dimensions.” –The New Yorker. Cleveland theatrical premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 128 min.
