DIRECTOR: Radu Jude - ROMANIA

Jude won Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival for this visionary historical epic — a European “Eastern” to an American Western. In the principality of Wallachia, life is more Dark Ages than Age of Enlightenment, even in 1835. Constable Costandin and his son have been dispatched by a nobleman to track down a runaway slave accused of seducing the landowner’s wife. Foul-mouthed and quick-tempered, Costandin rides roughshod on the local peasantry in his search, explaining to his teenaged son that he’s upholding the social order. But Costandin’s righteous indignation, fuelled by racism, gives way to a moral crisis, as his son’s inquisitiveness leads him to question whether justice is truly being served. (108 mins.)

Sponsored by the Romanian American Society.

Filmography: Everybody in Our Family (2012), The Happiest Girl in the World (2009)



Interests: Oscar Submissions.
