Collective (US Premiere on Nov 20 by Magnolia Pictures)
by Alexandru Nanau
2019, documentary, 109 minutes
In the 2015 tragic fire in a Bucharest club, 27 people died on one night and many more in the following weeks because of an inefficient and corrupt health system. Connecting the dots between the stories told by journalists, whistle blowers, doctors, politicians, the film allows images to speak for the suffering and the resilience of the Collective Club victims. Collective has an impressive list of awards, among which are the Best International Film at DocAviv Israel, the Grand Jury Prize at the One World International Human Rights Documentary Festival in Prague, the Documentary Award in Luxembourg, the Grand Prix at La Roche-sur-Yon and the Ulysses Award for the best documentary at Montpellier, France.
On Nov. 21 at 9pm PST there will be a live Q&A with the director Alexandru Nanau. This talk will be LIVE on this page at that time, and will be automatically recorded and added to the end of the film playlist for later viewing.
