Q&A with directors Bogdan Pușlenghea & Ovidiu Zimcea


City tells the story of the underground music scene in Timișoara in the first decade after the fall of the communist regime, a period still engrained in the collective memory as a good time for rebellion, experimentation and self-discovery through music. The film assembles the stories of people which created the Timișoara Underground Movement, showing how genres such as punk, hardcore, new wave and others have been appropriated according to available influences, unavailable instruments and local taste.
