original title: Autopsia uitării
country: Romania
year: 1977
running time: 5 min.


Touching a wall or a girl's face, standing by a window, eating an apple. Forgettable gestures and mundane moments  like moments we want to forget  can emerge under the hand of a skilled surgeon in the form of urgent, recurring images, a psychoanalytic montage of cinematic dreaming.


Ioan T. Morar (1956) is a journalist, writer, critic, diplomat, and satirist. In 2020, he published a book, Fake News in the Golden Age. Memories and stories of communist censorship. As a student, he was a member of the Arad film collective kinema ikon.
