One World Romania.. Festival

… or to take the long version: One World Romania International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, taking place March 16-22.

35 films in 10 categories – like ”Agents of Change” (with films like ”Citizenfour”, ”Euromaidan.Rough Cut” and ”Iranian”, ”Comrade Capitalism” (with ”Cardiopolitika”), ”Focus: Africa” (with ”Democrats” and ”Beach Boy”), ”Traumas” (with ”Night Will Fall”, ”The Missing Picture” and ”Naked Island”), a tribute to producer Heino Deckert (well deserved!) (with four of his productions including wonderful ”Julia’s Madness” by Hannes Schönemann from 1999)… take a look at the impressive programme that also includes a fine series of panel discussions and lectures that focus on content, narratives, funding, webdocs etc.

Words of welcome from Alexandru Solomon, the director of the festival: In 2015, for the 8th edition of One World Romania, we decided that we would gather on the “kino-maidan.” That’s because the word maidan has changed meaning: it no longer describes a mere feature of urban geography, but, rather, a public space where people gather to discuss their problems and to be together. We want One World Romania to become a meeting place where people come to see great documentary cinema, and where ideas are freed from the structures of the status quo. On our maidan, we are guided by our empathy for our fellow human beings and the freedom to be ourselves. Our program of films and side events opens our eyes towards maidans on five continents…

Well thought by Solomon… I will post texts from the festival, where I am invited to be tutoring at a three day workshop.

Share your love
