Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Illegitimate

Illegitimate, like Sieranevada, takes place largely within a Bucharest apartment, home to the Anghelescu family—an obstetrician father and four grown children, including fraternal twins Sasha and Romeo. The drama ignites when someone mentions the father’s record during the previous repressive regime as an informer who disclosed the names of women attempting to terminate pregnancies. Shot in a mere two weeks, Illegitimate is another recent example of an exhilarating and distinctive morality play. (Adrian Sitaru, 2016, subtitles, 86 minutes)

 

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