Cinema, Mon Amour

Director Alexandru Belc
2015, Romania/Czech Republic, 70min
Nominated for Gopo Awards

After the 1989 Revolution, Romania became the country with the lowest per-capita number of movie theater screens in the European Union. Alexandru Belc’s nostalgic and humorous exploration follows a dying breed of cinema managers. At the Dacia theater in Piatra Neamț, projectionist Victor Purice and his last two employees keep alive cinephile flames of the past despite the absurd conditions in which they have been functioning since the Revolution. 

Saturday, October 8th, 20:30, Cinema Arta
Preceded by: The Projectionist
Followed by Q&A: Alexandru Belc
