19 November 2013
share info
The 8th edition of the leading Romanian film festival placed in the US, Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema is around the corner and promises to highlight the best in Romanian contemporary cinema as well as rarely seen classic masterpieces! 
The festival returns from November 29th to December 3rd to the Film Society of Lincoln Center and expands from 5-10 December to the Jacob Burns Film Center.

This is the most surprising edition yet.

The festival will open its gates with the world premiere of the Romanian film Closer to the Moon by Nae Caranfil, shot in English with a stellar international cast. 
The audience will also have the chance to enjoy the New York Premiere of the winner of the Golden Bear at this year΄s Berlinale, Child΄s Pose, by Calin Peter Netzer, as well as  Corneliu Porumboiu΄s newest film, When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism, which will screen at the closing ceremony of  the festival, in presence of the director himself. 

But new releases don΄t stop here! Among the films we meet Domestic, by Andrian Sitaru and Love Building by Iulia Rugina, as well as the documentaries  Here I mean... There, by Laura Capatana Juller and The Bukuresti Experiment by Tom Wilson, which dares to investigate a strange experiment from Romania΄s recent history. 

This year, at the Special Screenings section, film-lovers will watch  Cristi Puiu’s trilogy Three Exercises of Interpretation, as well as the 2013 TIFF trailers also directed by Cristi Puiu, starring Luminita Gheorghiu.

Making Waves will continue its special program about relationship between arts and politics, focusing on film as a propaganda tool then and now with a panel conversation inviting Czech Republic and Slovakia to join. 
Special screenings will accompany the conversation with the so-called Transylvanians’ Trilogy, a hugely popular series made in the ‘80s consisted of the following movies:
- The Prophet, the Gold and the Transylvanians, by Dan Pita, Romania, 1979, 98min
- The Actress, the Dollars and the Transylvanians by Mircea Veroiu, Romania, 1981, 72min
- The Oil, the Baby and the Transylvanias by Dan Pita, Romania, 1982, 108min

And of course, to demonstrate the different ways in which Czechoslovakia’s and Romania’s national cinema was influenced, the screenings will continue with:
- The Sun in a Net, by Stefan Uher, Czechoslovakia, 1962, 90min
- Larks on a String, by Jiri Menzel, Czechoslovakia, 1969, 100min

Police, Adjective

Following a retrospective on the famous director Corneliu Porumboiu, in order to fully understand his personal style and vision about cinema, they will, not only screen his widely awarded and critically acclaimed feature films 12:08 East of Bucharest and Police, Adjective, but also three of his short films:

Keep in mind that apart from features, from Saturday 30 of November until Sunday 1 of December, seven new Romanian Short Films are going to be screened. Among them we meet altcineAction! 2013 winner of Alida Dimitriou Award, The Pill of Happiness by Cecilia Felmeri.
The rest of the films that will screen are 
12 minutes by Nicolas Constantin Tanase (Romania, 2013, 33min), 
Bad Penny by Andrei Cretulescu (Romania, 2013, 12΄), 
In the Fishbowl by Tudor Cristian Jurgiu (Romania, 2013, 21min),

Dominique Nasta, Professor of Film Studies at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, will be present for the launch of her recently published book – Conteporary Romanian Cinema. The History of an Unexpected Mireacle (Wall-flower Press, 2013). This amazingly well-documented book draws connections between Romania΄s cinema past and present and tries to answer an extremely difficult question: how was the miracle of the New Wave possible?

The 8th edition of Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema is presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Romanian Film Initiative in partnership with the Jacob Burns Film Center and Transilvania International Film Festival, and numerous partners and supporters.
