5th Annual Romanian Film Festival Seattle: “One Eye Laughing, One Eye Crying: Uncanny Worlds”
In tune with the Halloween spirit of the first week in November, travel with us to Romania and its “Uncanny Worlds”.
This year’s films will take you on a journey through the unusual, unfamiliar, ineffable, incomprehensible, unfathomable, inscrutable, and the unclear. More than ever, Romanian films reflect the uncanny aspects of reality, history, politics, and everyday life, as well as spirituality, folklore, and traditions.
The 2018 lineup is a visual feast of mesmerizing features and documentaries,tackling subjects from demon hunters and haunted mansions to rediscovering the joys of life and using art as activism. Festival guests scheduled to attend include actress and filmmaker Elena Beuca and director Daniel Sandu.
There will also be a special exhibition by artist Daniel Ursache, titled “Uncanny Figments”, hosted by A/NT Gallery. Opening Night will be November 3, and the show will be on display through the end of the month.
STAY TUNED: FULL LINE-UP & SCHEDULE WILL BE ANNOUNCED MID-SEPTEMBER.
