Award-winning thriller “Dogs” at the Romanian Cinematheque

Tue. 25 Sep, 2018 7:00 pm

25/09/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X8PH

 

We are thrilled to resume our Cinematheque screenings this September with “Dogs”, director Bogdan Miricã’s debut feature. Internationally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, where it won the FIPRESCI Award in the Un Certain Regard section, the film tells the story of Roman, a naïve outsider who returns to the land he has just inherited from his grandfather. Fully decided to sell this barren estate, he is warned that his grandfather was a local crime lord and his men will not let go of the land and their smuggling business without a fight.

 

Bogdan Mirică is an editor and writer, whose passion for cinema took him to the University of Westminster, London, where he studied screenwriting. In 2011, he wrote and directed his first short film, “Bora Bora”, which won him several awards in Europe, being selected at numerous festivals, including those of Locarno, Warsaw and Thessaloniki.

 

“In a Cannes that has given us a lot of pleasures, but very few real surprises or revelations, Mirica’s debut stands out, in a modest way, as both surprise and revelation—and certainly contributes to redrawing the map of Romanian cinema that we thought we knew so well.” – Jonathan Romney
