PREVIOUS FILM FROM 2021
GOLDEN BEAR WINNER

Based on a true story. Romania, 1981.

Ceaușescu is in office, leading a communist Romania. He writes the official story with the help of the National Television.

Mugur Călinescu, a 16 y.o. teenager, writes another story on walls with chalked uppercase protest messages against the regime. His actions are compiled in a voluminous file kept by the Secret Police (Securitate), which observed, apprehended, interrogated and destroyed him.

Linking both stories - secret and public - personal and collective - brings to light an unknown hero 30 years after the fall of communism.
