- Film Screening: Sundays on Leave (E Pericoloso Sporgersi)
15 May 7:00 pm
To coincide with the current exhibition, After the New Man, Foto8 and The Romanian Cultural Institute present a screening of acclaimed film, Sundays on Leave (E Pericoloso Sporgersi).
Nae Caranfil's debut feature film offers an ironic, witty and realistic image of Romania during the last years of Communism. The film is an intriguing and humorous story of three Romanians whose lives are revealed to be strongly intertwined as the film progresses. Caranfil's talent for recognizing humour and humanity in the extremely grim circumstances of those years - which is so prominent in his later works (Asfalt Tango and Filantropica) - is evident here as well.
Nae Caranfil (born 1960, Bucharest) is a film director and screenwriter. After a row of shorts shot in the eighties, Caranfil made his feature film debut with Sundays on leave / E Pericoloso Sporgersi (1993) and continued with road movie comedy Asfalt Tango (1996) followed by Dolce Far Niente (1998) and The Rest is Silence (2007).
