Washington Premiere

 

May 13 at 3:00

National Gallery of Art, East Building Auditorium

Followed by discussion with Corneliu Porumboiu

 

Fledgling journalist Radu, acting as translator and go-between for a French television network trying to scoop a sensational story, finds himself in the midst of a painful dilemma. Attempting to furtively get footage of a deported underage Romanian woman abducted by a prostitution ring, he has to pit his own conscience against his career ambitions in the wake of this imprecise case (the situation is inspired by an actual event). Ultimately, Radu’s vicious circle turns out to be a journey of self-discovery. (Adrian Sitaru, 2017, 100 minutes)

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