Synopsis

“The Dead Nation” is a documentary-essay, which shows a collection of photographs from a Romanian small town in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The soundtrack, composed mostly from excerpts taken from the diary of a Jewish doctor from the same era, shows us what the photographs do not: the rising of the anti-Semitism and eventually a harrowing depiction of the Romanian Holocaust, a topic which is not very talked about in the contemporary Romanian society.

"Amid general indifference, a few more will be sentenced. Then the elections will take place. And we will continue rebuilding the country and re-educating people..." Radu Jude's
