"Reenactment (1970) stands among the exemplary works of its region and time. Subtle, difficult and brave, it represents a powerful statement of artistic honesty in a culture of official lies and evasions"
  -New York Times

 

After two friends drunkenly injure a waiter, the police force them to recreate their crime for an "educational" film—with disastrous results. Immediately banned in communist Romania, Reenactment is one of the key films of the Romanian cinema (voted best Romanian film of all time by 40 Romanian film critics) and stands among the exemplary works of its region and time.

Directed by Lucian Pintilie, Romania, 1969, 35mm, 106 mins. In Romanian with English subtitles.

sponsored by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences sponsored by The Chauncey and Marion D. McCormick Family Foundation
