Reinventing Realism: New Cinema from Romania Film Festival – Washington D.C., June 1-6
June 1 - June 6
D.C. friends, mark your calendars for June 1 to 16 for some Romanian movies that received several international awards: ‘One Step Behind The Seraphim’, ‘Alice T’, ‘Infinite Football’, ‘Marita’, ‘Pororoca’, ‘Charlestone’, ‘Moromete Family: On The Edge of Time’. The cultural indulgence is due to Ambasada României în Statele Unite ale Americii / Romanian Embassy in US, Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. More to come about the Festival soon.
Screenings to take place at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. From the National Gallery:
“Since the late 1990s a group of intellectually adventurous filmmakers from Romania has been enlivening the European art scene with a steady stream of robustly realistic films that tackle moral and ethical issues, and make thought-provoking parables from everyday events. At the same time these filmmakers, working collaboratively, have set up a discourse about contemporary societal and civil issues that hover over Europe. This series is the last in a cycle of three retrospectives at the National Gallery of Art to focus on Romania’s New Wave — earlier installments took place in 2007 and 2017. The Gallery wishes to thank the Embassy of Romania and the Romanian Cultural Institute for their partnership.”
