Transilvania International Film Festival’s traditional partner HBO will preview this year the first two episodes of Tuff Money / Bani negri (pentru zile albe) on Friday, August 7, at 9:30 PM at Club Transilvania. Written and directed by Daniel Sandu (One Step Behind the Seraphim / Un pas în urma Serafimilor), the series stars Alexandru Papadopol, Cristian Bota, and Medeea Marinescu in a funny story about an unusual robbery.
Another special screening will be dedicated to the HBO production Acasă, My Home, which follows four years in the life a family dislocated from their decades-long home in the Văcărești Delta on the outskirts of Bucharest, where they lived in perfect harmony with nature. Radu Ciorniciuc’s documentary won the Special Jury Prize for Cinematography in the Sundance international documentary competition.
Another film that shook the public opinion in 2019 is part of the program: Alexander Nanau’s Collective / Colectiv traces the year after the catastrophic club fire in Bucharest whose aftermath revealed an entire network of corruption, lies, and manipulation.
