Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema 2018 November 29-December 5 ~Pleasantville~

Found in Yonkers Logo

Featuring top festival winners Touch Me Not (Golden Bear in Berlin) and “I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians” (Crystal Globe in Karlovy Vary), this year Making Waves showcases the ever-growing diversity of the New Romanian Cinema: from Constantin Popescu’s slow-burning thriller, Pororoca, and its maddening quest for a missing child to Andrei Cretulescu’s strange mix of black comedy and retro melodrama, Charleston; from Daniel Sandu’s box-office hit and autobiographical coming of age story, One Step Behind the Seraphim (winner of most Gopo Awards, the Romanian Oscars), to Paul Negoescu’s light-hearted rom-com, The Story of a Summer Lover; and last but not least, veteran Alexandru Solomon’s fascinating and multi-layered documentary, Tarzan’s Testicles, set in a primate-breeding institute.
