Tales from the Golden Age / Cristian Mungiu, Hanno Hofer, Razvan Marculescu, Ioana Uricaru

Tales from the Golden Age is an unconventional personal history of the late communist period in Romania, told through its urban myths from the perspective of ordinary people. Comic, bizarre, and surprising, these myths drew on the often surreal events of everyday life under the communist regime. Humor is what kept Romanians alive, and Tales from the Golden Age aims to re-capture that mood, portraying the survival of a nation which every day had to face the twisted logic of a dictatorship.
