Rasnov medieval city hosts first edition of Historical Film Festival

The first edition of the Historical Film Festival in Rasnov will be organised on September 4 – 6, featuring historical dramas such as ‘Nemuritorii’ (‘The Immortal’) or ‘Mihai Viteazul’ (‘Michael the Brave’) directed by Sergiu Nicolaescu, as well as films made by directors of the younger generation like ‘A fost sau n-a fost?’ (‘12:08 East of Bucharest’) by Corneliu Porumboiu or ‘4 luni, 3 saptamani si 2 zile’ (‘4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days’ by Cristian Mungiu. Viewers will enjoy old and new historical films, historical exhibitions and book releases, seasoned with a seminar discussing the theme ‘Medieval cities as endangered heritage’ and a party held in an industrial facility. The films will be divided into three different sections: ‘Sword’ ‘Sickle’ and ‘Hammer’, each proposing a specific type of movies. ‘Sword’ brings box office hits shot on location at Rasnov, ‘Sickle’ brings film addressing communist topics including Cannes-awarded pieces going back to 1965 and ‘Hammer’ closes with documentaries the themes and approach angles of which have shocked the international cinema world.
