Romanian Cinema episode 1

In recent years Romanian cinema was boosted by international awards at film festivals, such as Cannes and Berlin. Being in the spotlight helped, as few people knew about Romanian films a decade ago. The leap was huge and riding the wave was a new generation of filmmakers, emerged from a country with no real film industry. So the films were low budget, focused on Romanian society and minimalistic in appearance. At home many perceived them as harsh, long and maybe too realistic. So how did this success story change the rules of the game? Our journey starts in Bucharest as we’re trying to find out where Romanian films come from, who’s making them and how does the future of film making in Romania look like.
