Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor (RO/CH) / “Procesul / The Trial” - 2004/2005 - 37:24 min

.: Statement

“A film about a text that seems to be a theatrical performance rather than the transcript of a trial, about the TV journals presenting each evening the new blocks of flats constructed by the socialist regime, filmed now from the same Dacia car, about how nothing changed with those blocks of flats in the last 15 years.”
-Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor
