Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Sieranevada


sieranevada CROPPED

 

Cristi Puiu’s commanding chamber piece takes place during one day—January 10, 2015, the time of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris—and within a single Bucharest apartment. An extended family is gathering to prepare a meal together, an Orthodox ritual for ushering the soul of a dead patriarch into the afterlife. Twenty or so relatives, spouses, and children eventually cram the apartment, as old rivalries and betrayals start to surface. Brilliantly choreographed, Sieranevada is a breathtaking tour de force, “not only one of cinema’s great human frescos but a virtuosic dinner-table set piece to rival Buñuel’s The Exterminating Angel” — Toronto International Film Festival. (Cristi Puiu, 2016, subtitles, 176 minutes)

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