Synopsis

German director Harun Farocki’s and Romanian writer Andrej Ujica’s co-created film shows the Romanian Revolution of December 1989 in Bucharest. Crowds of protesters flooded the streets in attempt to overthrow the Communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu. This cinematic essay uses amateur videos filmed by activists and material from the archives of state television, which, once it was occupied by demonstrators, became their main refuge and weapon. It was the first revolution in history where television played a key role.
