Things don’t go as planned with her green card application and Mara is faced with abuses of power and excruciating decisions about what she’s willing to do to obtain legal status.The film was nominated for Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival and won the Heart of Sarajevo Prize for Best Director at the Sarajevo Film Festival and Best Film at International Women Film Festival of Sale, Morocco 2018.

Searching for Life with Painter Bogdan Mihai Radu

Wed. 20 Mar, 2019 7:00 pm

20 - 31/03/2019 @ Romanian Cultural Institute London, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X 8PH


This spring, RCI’s Brâncuşi Gallery is set to host the first UK showcase of painter Bogdan Mihai Radu, winner of the 1st Prize at last year’s Oxford International Art Fair. The exhibition, a striking display that reunites the floral repertory already familiar to the painter's audiences and his lesser-known abstract expressionist works, comprises 20 acrylic paintings from the enthralling ‘Searching for Life’ series.


Prefaced by HE Dan Mihalache, the Ambassador of Romania to the Court of St James’s, the event is organised  in partnership with Hospices of Hope and the Embassy of Romania in the UK, in the presence of the artist. 


“A Romanian artist whose works spoke volumes at the entrance to the show. On an immense scale that’s immersive, Bogdan’s abstracted expressionism is bold and striking, dense with mood and emotion”. (Richard Knight, Christie's, Oxford 2018)


Educated at the Fine Arts Faculty in Cluj-Napoca, Bogdan Mihai Radu held his first solo show at Casa Ille et Villaine in 2002.  The exhibition gathered many appreciative accolades among the artistic people of Sibiu, the artist’s hometown. One year later, he became a member of the Sibiu branch of the Union of Fine Artists, which endorsed his name in a group exhibition at the Atelier 35 Gallery and created an opportunity for a new personal exhibition opened at Atelier 202 in Apoldu de Sus. Casa Luxemburg (The Luxemburg House) was, in 2004, the ideal space for the public to experience the essence of a new exhibition, in the same way in which the Cisnădie City Hall became a hospitable place for another solo show entitled ‘Plunged into Colour’. In 2006, Bogdan Mihai Radu was selected to paint in the creation camp at Balcic (Bulgaria), a seaside event followed by an exhibition titled ‘The Heart of Queen Marie’ in the Carol I Central University Library in Bucharest. The exhibition dedicated to Queen Marie of Romania was opened in 2016 at Cotroceni National Museum.  This brought him a renowned School of Barbizon scholarship, a symbol of excellence in painting. In 2018, he won the 1st Prize at the Oxford International Art Fair and was special guest at Tokyo International Art Fair, where he was appreciated by the art critics. For more details, please visit http://www.bogdanmihairadu.com/


The exhibition at 1 Belgrave Square is dedicated to the memory of the artist's mother.



When: Opening and drinks reception 20 March 2019, 7-9pm. The exhibition continues until 31 March 2019, Monday to Friday between 10am – 5pm.

Which One of Us: A Story to Tell

Thu. 28 Mar, 2019 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


28/03/2019 @ RCI London

“Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story.” - John Barth

At the end of March, renowned theatre director and writer Chris Simion-Mercurian joins beloved actress Maia Morgenstern and photographer Cătălina Flămânzeanu for a special event occasioned by the launch of her bilingual autobiographical volume entitled ꞌWhich One of Usꞌ.

Brought together by the author’s touching life story, whose battle with cancer is poignantly described in her new book, the three artists recreate the healing journey through theatre, film and an open invitation to dialogue. The theatrical adaptation of the story will be brought on stage by unrivaled Maia Morgenstern.

“The diagnosis helped me remind myself what is essential in life. I have received this disease as a gift, not as a sorrow, and I never stopped feeling that God was with me.” – Chris Simion

Chris Simion-Mercurian studied at the National University of Theatre and Film I. L. Caragiale in Bucharest and holds two degrees - in Theatre (1999) and Theatre Direction (2004).  Among the books she published, we mention ꞌWhat are we telling to each other when we are not speakingꞌ, ꞌForty daysꞌ, ꞌEveryday God is praying for meꞌ and ꞌThe Imperatives of Adolescenceꞌ. In the world of theatre, she is acknowledged for her modern, original vision and her rare aesthetical courage. She is also the initiator of the Undercloud Festival of Independent Theatre and of the ꞌGriviţa 53 - The first theatre built togetherꞌ project. Her collaboration with the renowed actress Maia Morgernstern originates in the writer’s strong desire to share her experience as a thorougly authentic lesson of faith and hope.

A symbol of the Romanian theatre and film, Maia Morgenstern is probably best known in the English-speaking world for the role of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, in Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ'. Born in the Romanian capital in a Jewish family, she graduated from the Film and Theatre Academy of Bucharest in 1985. From 1990 to 1998 she was a member of the company of the National Theatre in Bucharest, and since 1998 - of Bulandra Theatre. She is currently playing at the State Jewish Theatre of Bucharest, which she also runs, but continues to tour all over Romania. Maia Morgenstern is the recipient of numerous awards amongst which the 2004 Actress and Woman of the Year Award, awarded by the European Parliament, the 2004 EMMA Award for the part Mary in 'The Passion of the Christ', the 1993 Silver Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival for the female lead part in 'The Oak', directed by Lucian Pintilie, the 1993 Romanian Association of Theatre Artists Best Actress Award for the lead part in 'Tonight: Lola Blau' and, in 1990, Lucia Sturdza Bulandra National Award for Best Actress, for the Medeea part in Andrei Şerban’s 'Ancient Trilogy'.

Cătălina Flămînzeanu is a graduate of the Babeş-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, with a degree in Journalism from the Faculty of Political, Administrative and Communication Studies. Passionate about portraiture and theatre photography, she had two exhibitions entitled ꞌPhotographs with IEꞌ and ꞌMother. Essay about loveꞌ and is the official photographer of the Undercloud Festival. She is convinced that emotions are never dull and she knows how to show through her work both the confidence and the vulnerability of us humans. Her collaboration with Chris Simion-Mercurian started as an experiment which turned into an emotionally charged piece of art.
