synopsis

“You’re a masochist, you live in Romania. I don’t know how you put up with all the craziness.” Or perhaps you aren’t putting up with the craziness in Romania. Or not anymore. Which means that you have become one of those who increasingly finds themselves out in the streets contesting the status quo. The three filmmakers behind Megaphone track the emergence of a range of new spaces of alternative cultural interaction in Romania, which have paved the way for a new kind of civil society at the heart of the recent, large scale social mobilization throughout the country. Through interviews with some of the key actors in events and protests such as the Bucharest bike protests, Street Delivery, FânFest, Roșia Montană, Colectiv and more recently, the OUG13 protests, here is a fresh view of a changing country becoming increasingly skilled in a culture of protest propelled by the alternative cultural scene. We are many.
