“[Filmmaker] Radu Jude launches a blistering attack on Romanian Holocaust denial and historical myopia” (Variety). Tasked with staging a public performance relating to Romanian history, an idealistic theatre director opts to stage a re-enactment of a 1941 massacre of tens of thousands of Jews by Romanian troops. Her choice angers a city official who threatens to close the production because of its “anti-Romanian” take on history. However, the reaction to the piece is one that neither anticipated. This internationally-acclaimed dark satire is a timely statement about the consequences of selective and willful amnesia on a society fueled by populist sentiments.
