The New Wave in Romanian Cinema

In the wake of the US critical success of Cristi Puiu’s The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, the festival aims to introduce to the New York audience other new voices of the Romanian cinema. These young directors, which bring a fresh view on both the recent past and the present-day life of Romania, have enjoyed great success at major festivals all over the world. They may well be the long-expected revolution in post-1989 Romanian cinema.
