Radu Muntean


  • Director, Screenwriter, Producer
  • Born: 08.06.1971 in Bucharest
Graduate of the Academy of  Theatre and Film "I.L.Caragiale" (year 1994). “As early as  my college years I made, besides the yearly student exercises, the documentary Lindenfeld’ 94, the sad story of a German village in Romania, with three people left in it (that hated each other) and, in collaboration with the Visual Arts Foundation, another film-testimony that I won’t dare call a pamphlet,They Are Ours Too, about the contemporary descendants of the illustrious Bratianu family. Between 1994-1996 I worked within the film studio of the Romanian Television. It was there that I made The Tragic Love Story of the Two. I had the ambition to shoot it all in one single take. And it very much seems that I succeeded with this film. It had a remarked path in international festivals (Biarritz, prized in Hanover etc). Still in the film studio of the Romanian Television I made the short The Geraniums - one piece of the impossible love stories cycle written by Marius Sopterean. Since 1996 I’ve been working in advertising .”(CINEMA magazine, Oct 2002)
