Day 3 @ One World Romania 11

Sunday, March 18th, is packed with screenings, from 11 am to 9.30 pm, when we’ll be screening the last documentary scheduled on the 3rd day of One World Romania 11. Out of the 26 documentaries screened on Sunday, 21 of them will be in the presence of the filmmakers and we also invite you to a special event dedicated to film archives and a Vama concert at the end of day.



The event will take place on Sunday, starting at 1 pm at Rezidența BRD Scena9 and it accompanies and expands the topic of audio-visual archives and the section Past Present, which highlights the present day relevance of certain historical phenomena and the role they’ve played in shaping the present. One of the reasons we chose these themes is related to our constant pursuit of recovering the documentary heritage of the “Alexandru Sahia” Studio. The full program of the debates is available here.


The three films from the section Memory in Motion are also scheduled on Sunday, March 18th at Cinema Union – Cinema Futures (starts at 10.30 am and will be followed by a debate with Michael Loebenstein, director of Austrian Film Museum in Wien), Picturesque Epochs (starts at 6 pm) and Dawson City: Frozen Time (starts at 9 pm and will be followed by a discussion with director Bill Morrison).




We recommend two films from the section Past Present: A Feeling Greater Than Love (starts at 3.30 pm at Cinema Union) and Child Mother (starts at 6.30 pm at Cinema Eforie). After the screenings you can meet the filmmakers - Mary Jirmanus Saba at Union and Yael Kipper and Ronen Zaretzky at Eforie.

The documentary A Feeling Greater Than Love tells the story of two factory strikes that took place in the 1970s in Lebanon and, beyond this, the bigger picture of the historical failure of Lebanon’s Left – a moment that was largely forgotten in the shadow of the 1975 civil war.



Sunday, March 18th, we’ve programmed four films from the section Art in Action at Cinema Muzeul Țăranului, CinemaPRO and Cinema Elvire Popesco – When God Sleeps, I’ve Got a Little Problem, Colette Magny’s Political Song and Faces Places.

When God Sleeps presents Iranian rapper Shahin Najafi, called the “Salman Rushdie of rap”—because, like Rushdie, he has to live with an edict imposed against him by hard-line Islamic clerics in response to perceived blasphemy (fatwa).

After the screening of the documentary, the audience will have the chance of talking to the director of the film, Till Schauder, and to Tudor Chirilă, one of the few popular Romanian artists who are not afraid to assume firm positions in the current socio-political context. Tudor and his band mates from Vama will hold a concert on Sunday evening, starting at 10 pm in Club Control.




In each of the two Sundays of the One World Romania 11 festival we’ve programmed 5 films which will be screened at CinemaPRO. On Sunday, March 18th, you can watch here the documentaries: Mama Colonel, Faces Places, Waiting for Giraffes and The Other Side of Everything.

Waiting for Giraffes will start at 5.30 pm and after the screening you will have the chance of talking to the director of the film, Marco de Stefanis.

Mila Turajlić, the director of the film The Other Side of Everything, will also be present for a Q&A with the audience after the screening, which starts at 8 pm.
