The Romanian Film Initiative, BAMcinématek (30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY) and the Jacob Burns Film Center (364 Manville Rd, Pleasantville, NY) will be hosting the 12h edition of MAKING WAVES: New Romanian Cinema festival, to take place November 30-December 7, 2017.
From the press release:
Showcasing the best new releases from November 30- December 7, the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY, sees the return of audience darling Nae Caranfil, who gets to open this year’s festival at the JBFC with his new musical extravaganza, 6.9 on the Richter Scale. International film festival highlights, including Adrian Sitaru’s The Fixer and Calin Peter Netzer’s Ana, Mon Amour join the party; and so does a contingent of promising first-time filmmakers. It’s a hell of a ride, with The Gambler by Ignas Jonynas equally on board—courtesy of this edition’s guest country, Lithuania.
New York’s longstanding Romanian film festival comes for this edition also to BAMcinématek from December 4-7, with an exclusive program which blends the award-winning works of a brand new generation of talents—including a Balkan Coen-esque thriller, a zany social comedy, and a quiet backwater drama—plus a spotlight on Anca Damian, one of the most compelling Romanian directors working today who has forged a singular path with her visually arresting documentary, narrative, and animation hybrids or her intellectually challenging fiction films.
Festival guests include directors:
