The world’s first ever interactive film screening in Bucharest and Cluj

Having been shown to viewers in London, Basel and Prague, “Kinoautomat”, the first interactive film in the world, banned by the communist regime in Czechoslovakia on grounds of giving the “option to choose”, will be screened in Romania for the first time, in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest, tomorrow and on Saturday, Mediafax quoted the Czech Center Bucharest as saying. In the Capital, the film will be projected at Cinematheque Eforie, from 8.00 pm, and in Cluj, at Cinema Victoria, from the same time. “Kinoautomat” revolutionized the relationship between viewers and film. It proved prophetic, given its speaking about democracy one year before the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia. A short while thereafter, the film was banned. Forty years later, Raduz Cincera’s perfectly functional project mechanism is brought to the large screen. The film was shot by Raduz Cincera for the Czech pavilion at the Montreal 1967 World Exhibition.The film is shown with English subtitles. Tickets are priced at RON 5 each.
