23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The Dead Nation
This minimalist documentary consists primarily of photographs of small Romanian towns from the 1930s and ’40s, plus excerpts from the diary of a Jewish doctor living in Bucharest. The description of the horrors of Romanian fascism and the Holocaust is reflected in seemingly peaceful, stylized scenes of life close to war.
Radu Jude (1977) works primarily in fiction film and advertising. His I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians (2018) won the main prize at this year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
