Young people are auditioning for the role of Nicolae Ceausescu in the mid-1930s without any preconceived ideas. The result is a portrait of this young generation, a glimpse of Romania's Communist leader's legacy.
Sebastian Mihăilescu (b. 1983) is a graduate of the National University of Theater and Cinematography “I.L. Caragiale” (class 2013), as well as a master’s degree in film directing at the same university.
His graduation film, Interwar apartment, in a superb, ultra-central area, was screened for the first time in 2016 at the Locarno International Film Festival – Pardi Domani competition.
He is currently in production with his debut in fiction feature film, Double happiness.
