Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Back Home

A writer disillusioned with his life in Bucharest returns to his ancestral village after a long absence, hoping for deliverance. He encounters two former classmates: Petrica, his old best friend now married with children, and Paula, his former sweetheart, recently divorced. A reflection on the painful struggles that persist below the surface of things, Back Home’s thoughtful message is balanced by cinematographer Andrei Butică’s poetic portrayal of small-town life. (Andrei Cohn, 2015, subtitles, 91 minutes)

 

This program is in conjunction with the National Gallery of Art.
