Ambassador George Cristian Maior:
“The Embassy of Romania, in partnership with the National Gallery of Art, the American Film Institute and the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York presents a series of Romanian films under the title “Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania”.
The movies are well-known by cinema lovers as being part of the Romanian New Wave Cinema. American audiences and die-hard film enthusiasts will experience both ordinary and unusual life stories from Romania. The New Wave films are full of black humor and self-irony rendered in a minimalist cine-verite manner.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to discover Romanian cinema through these movies that have dominated all the major film festivals for years.”
