Romania, 2007 – Corneliu Porumboiu – 89 mins


Set in a local television station, a presenter tries to put together a programme on the history of the revolution, but phone-in viewers’ claims question whether it ever took place. Wryly funny and highly original this modern deadpan masterpiece of satire captures both this event’s contentious narratives, and the bitter feeling of hopes dashed in its wake.
