Every cinematheque has to have a crime season. And what film would proudly open our Crime Season better than Cristi Puiu's dark and disturbing 'Aurora'?

Aurora — that is, 'dawn' in Romanian — is the moment when night and day meet. 'Aurora' is the film that asks overwhelmingly difficult questions, taking the viewer in the most tenebrous zones of human psyche. A mesmerizing masterwork from one of the great innovators of the art of film that anyone should see! 
This screening is possible with the support of New Wave Films.


'Aurora' is the story of the fall of an ordinary man – an imperfect fall without glory. A recently divorced father of two young daughters, Viorel is an engineer. The film follows Viorel for two days as he wanders around Bucharest. Wherever he is, he feels the same strange nervousness, the same muffled anxiety and the same urge to end the instability that rules his life. He buys a rifle and ammunition, then goes back home to test his weapon...


This screening also celebrates 10 years from the release of 'The Death of Mr Lazarescu', Cristi Puiu's award-winning film, considered by many critics the beginning of the Romanian New Wave.

When: Thursday 26 February, 7pm.
Where: Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

Admission is free, the seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please confirm your attendance at eventbrite or at
