“I do not care if we go down in history as barbarians.” These words, spoken in the Council of Ministers of the summer of 1941, started the ethnic cleansing on the Eastern Front. The film attempts to comment on this statement.
A young woman theatre director wants to stage, in a public square, a historical reenactment of a massacre committed by the Romanian army in 1941. This simple narrative is enriched, like in a collage, by scenes which create surprising analogies between a hidden dark past and our present, between the nationalism of the ‘40s & the the raise of nationalism today.
A relevant topic all over the world, including for the U.S. citizens, if only we mention that one of the leaders of the Charlottesville riots was inspired by a Romanian fascist organization from that period. The film was written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Radu Jude and won the Cristal Globe for Best Film at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
This film is Romania’s entry in the Oscar’s foreign-language film category.
Q&A with producer Ada Solomon & actress Ioana Iacob moderated by Steve Pond.
