Romanian New Cinema
- 104 Downloads
This chapter calls for the canonisation of contemporary Romanian films and groups them according to their implicit and explicit approach to the socialist past. By establishing three categories (retrospective films, Romanian New Wave, and Romanian past films) within the contemporary Romanian feature film corpus, the chapter focuses on internationally recognised Romanian productions such as Stere Gula’s I am an Old Communist Hag (Sunt o baba comunista, 2013, 2004), Radu Muntean’s The Paper Will Be Blue (Hârtia va fi albastră, 2006) and Andrei Gruzsniczki’s Quod erat demonstrandum (The Escape, 2013).
