«Romania Enterprise» (2014)

On September 22 in 2013, two filmmakers relocate 50 angry young people to a village, into an imaginary 2015 when Romania is no longer a state but a private enterprise. Exposed fully frontal to the imminent bulldozing of the entire village, the participants get positioned as either attackers or defenders of Romania Enterprise. But the arrival of the bulldozer suddenly destabilizes the core identities of the ones involved: the activists become aggressors, the director becomes dictator and the actors boycott the production. They slowly get absorbed into a hectic battle that pushes them to rely blindly on something that was no longer clean: the water.

A film that equates the democracy sham of the Romanian state and the production politics of cinema.
