Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: The Miracle of Tekir

The mysterious legend of Lake Techirghiol (Tekirgöl) in southeastern Romania is at the heart of The Miracle of Tekir, a place known for the healing properties and miraculous cures of its thermal waters and muds. These waters visually suffuse the film’s design as well as its narrative. Director Ruxandra Zenide’s enigmatic project is an almost dreamlike departure from the earthy realism of contemporary Romanian cinema, offering a multilayered view of Romanian history, culture, and society. (Ruxandra Zenide, 2016, subtitles, 90 minutes)

 

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