DocAlliance Offers Kino Maidan Online

Voilá – 5 films for free taken from the upcoming festival programme of One World Romania (see post below)… words from the site of DocAlliance:

…For the eighth time, the international festival One World Romania brings a critical voice as well as a rich film programme to Bucharest. For the third time, you can watch a selection of the best films online. This year, too, we will present films dealing primarily with the questions of democracy, observance of human rights and reflection of various forms of public protests. One of these protests, held at Maidan square in Ukraine, gave the name “Kino Maidan” to this year’s festival edition. As the festival’s director Alexandru Solomon points out in an exclusive interview, the festival celebrates all the Maidans across the world as well as documentary film as one of the best tools to fight injustice…

The films are ”Vitosha” (Bulgaria, Lyubomir Mladenov), ”Waiting for August” (Romania, Teodora Ana Mihai), ”Naked Island” (PHOTO) (Croatia, Tiha K. Gudac), ”The Serbian Lawyer” (Serbia, Aleksandar Nikolic) and ”Outside” (Germany, Romania, Andrei Schwartz).

These films can be watched for free until March 15. Read the descriptions, read the interview with Alexandru Solomon.
