One Eye Laughing, One Eye Crying: Tales of Resistance

The title of the festival highlights a certain Romanian taste for dark humor and wisdom to reconcile life's most demanding contradictions. This year's edition celebrates Romania's cultural, ethnic and religious diversity within a society where personal, unforgettable stories have challenged and altered the course of history. Through our selection of comedy-dramas, documentaries, and animation, you will discover the internationally praised 'New Romanian Cinema' and its precursors. Local and international special guests will present the movies and interact with the audience at the festival gala.
