Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Beyond the Hills

Director Cristian Mungiu based his screenplay for Beyond the Hills on Tatiana Niculescu Bran’s nonfiction novel about a demonic possession that allegedly occurred in northwestern Romania. As challenging in its ideas as in its raw visual realism, the film — set mainly in a simple rural monastery — weaves a tale of two women whose fates, entangled since their orphaned childhood, are about to cross again. (Cristian Mungiu, 2012, subtitles, 155 minutes)

 

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