Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema

Series Site

The extraordinary Romanian cinema renaissance continues as seen in the 13th edition of this annual showcase. This year’s program celebrates a new wave of films by women directors, including a Golden Bear-winning exploration of intimacy and desire; a groundbreaking gay love story; and documentaries that confront Romania’s turbulent 20th century. In addition, the festival highlights the darkly satirical work of internationally acclaimed auteur Radu Jude, whose career-long concerns with Jewish identity and the darkest chapters of Romanian history crescendo in his latest tour-de-force, “I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians”.
