The 11th edition of the One World Romania International Human Rights and Documentary Film Festival
(March, 16-25, 2018) has 10 days of documentary screenings in 8 locations in Bucharest. Alongside the sections dedicated to justice, LGBTQ rights or education,
the One World Romania Festival brings to the table other burning issues
, such as the refugee situation and the authoritarian, fundamentalist and racist movements from around the world. After all the screenings, there will be debates with either the filmmakers or experts in the topics or geopolitical areas presented in the films.
Underneath the skin of the prosperous people from The Celebration
(directed by Alexandra Wesolowski), there are all sorts of questions and convictions that speak about the more complex tensions of contemporary Poland, surf
aced by the presence of the niece coming from Germany in otherwise benign-looking
In Golden Dawn Girls (directed by Håvard Bustnes), when the men are ripped away from the Party`s body and sent to prison, the women discover their responsibilities and also their PR abilities. Another News Story (directed by Orban Wallace) follows a group of people who leave Lesbos and cross Europe in search of a shelter. The director adds an unexpected level of representation when he decides to point his camera towards the refugees, but also towards the journalists of various nationalities, who follow them along their journey. Off the Tracks (directed by Dieter Schumann) is the story of a kiosk, a small-town station bar in Germany. The station is Boizenburg, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. But it might as well be anywhere else. There are actually two parallel universes that clash.
