After the Revolution

Laurențiu Calciu | Romania | 2010 | 83'

This is a film about what happened just after Romania's bloody 1989 revolution. Set in the streets of central Bucharest and filmed in the observational cinema style, After the Revolution follows the furious debates that were taking place on the streets at the time and observes the struggle for power between Ion Iliescu, a former Communist leader who assumed power immediately after Nicolae Ceausescu was deposed, and Ion Ratiu who had spent most of his life living in exile in London.
