AURORA

DIRECTOR: Cristi Puiu - ROMANIA

Following his spellbinding Romanian hospital odyssey The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Aurora is Puiu’s second film in his planned series “Six Stories from the Outskirts of Bucharest.” Here, the tightly wound coldness of middle-aged metallurgical engineer Viorel—played by Puiu himself with inscrutable intensity—slowly metastasizes into a discreet, inaccessible unraveling. Elliptically observing the day-to-day life of a seemingly normal guy who will eventually commit violent acts, Puiu invites the audience to puzzle over his motives. We watch him from a distance as simmering anger and disconnection take hold. “For all the viewer’s constant immersion in the specifics of Viorel’s activity, there’s...

Facing an “is this all life has to offer?” moment, they each turn to the...

MORGEN

DIRECTOR: Marian Crisan - ROMANIA

Nelu lives on an isolated farm near the city of Salonta, not far from the Romanian-Hungarian border. He loves fishing each morning in the canals near the border before heading to work. One day he catches something unusual: a Kurdish immigrant attempting to cross the border to Hungary on his way to Germany. Nelu is a massive, slow-thinking, seldom speaking man who, if upset, is capable of unsuspected resoluteness. His quiet determination is a clear standout in this subtle satire that attacks the absurdity of any kind of borders. This charming fish-out-of-water tale about a supermarket security guard who defies...
