Romanian films in Toronto

‘Tales from the Golden Age’ produced by Cristian Mungiu is opening the Toronto Romanian Film Festival which is taking place from February 4 through 7, screening films by Andrei Dascalescu and Alexandru Solomon, the organizers inform on their website. Premiered at Cannes in 2009, ‘Tales from the Golden Age’ is a collaborative movie made by Cristian Mungiu, Razvan Marculescu, Ioana Uricaru, Constantin Popescu and Hanno Höfer. Organised by ToRo Arts Group and the Romanian Cultural Institute, the Toronto Festival is now in its third edition held under the headline ‘Crisis ’89, then Adaptation’. The event will also host a round table moderated by Calin-Andrei Mihailescu, Professor at the University of Western Ontario. The debate preceded by the “La Nouvelle Vague du cinema Roumain” documentary by Marius Doïcov and Vincent Guyottot will bring together producer Tudor Giurgiu and film critics Jennie Punter and Adam Nayman. The Toronto Romanian Film Festival will also have a special day dedicated to documentary films, with the screening of ‘Videograms of the Revolution’ by Andrei Ujic? and Harun Farocki, elected by the Cahiers du Cinema publication as “one of the most subversive films of all times’. Another documentary that will be screened is “Weddings, Music and Videotapes’ and ‘Constantin and Elena’ by Andrei Dasca.
