Section: What´s left?



Mihai Grecu
FR/RO, 2022, 45 Min

What if Nicolae Ceaușescu, the self-proclaimed "Great Commander," were resurrected in present-day Romania? A film crew announces this miracle in a Romanian village. The Conducător then really does reappear, as a hologram. Not only amusing, but also slightly frightening reflection on forgetting too quickly and political nostalgia as a life lie and late consequence of dictatorships
