Beyond the Hills – the Vermont Connection

7 Days – Ethan de Seife – June 24, 2014

One of the biggest surprises in recent international cinema has been the critical and commercial success of the Romanian New Wave. The cinematic history of the small, mountainous country is not particularly rich, largely due to the fact that so much of its modern culture had been squelched by the 25-year totalitarian regime of Nicolae Ceausescu. Indeed, many of the films of the Romanian New Wave refer, directly or indirectly, to the effects of or fallout from Ceausescu’s rule.

Beyond the Hills, the most recent film from acclaimed director Cristian Mungiu, is no exception.

Beyond the Hills is showing, Thursday, June 26 at 7pm at Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center. CLICK HERE for details and tickets.
