“Prisoners on Christmas” in Tago Mago Club

The play “Captivi de Craciun”/ “Prisoners on Christmas”, a medium feature film, directed by Iulia Rugina and written by Ana Agopian, Oana Rasuceanu and Iulia Rugina, will be screened, on Friday, August 27, starting 21:00, at the Tago Mago Club. Presented in a world preview at the NexT International Film Festival (April 2010) and selected within the Romanian Film Days competition of the Transylvania International Film Festival (May-June 2010), the film was, on each occasion, a tremendous success with audiences. The play will be presented alongside the feature films “Vineri, in jur de 11”/ “Friday, about 11”, by Iulia Rugina, and “Ela” and “Nunta lui Oli”/ “Oli’s Wedding”, directed by Tudor Cristian Jurgiu.

“Captivi de Craciun” tells the tale of four characters who don’t know each other and who are forced to spend Christmas Eve in a small-town railway station, far from the people and the places where they have to and wish to spend Christmas, waiting for a train snowed up many miles away. As the hours go by and the train, it seems, will never come, Madalina, Cristi, Oxana and Alex all share the sense of the absurd, hope, anger, despair.
