Cinema, Mon Amour opens the 2017 programme of the Romanian Cinematheque
Wed 29 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Cinema, Mon Amour, one of the recent outstanding Romanian documentaries, will have its London premiere at the Romanian Cinematheque. The film is an homage to a life spent in a cinema and a life lived (literally and metaphorically) through cinema.
Cinema, Mon Amour follows the story of Victor Purice - manager, former projectionist and lifetime cinephile - and his two loyal employees, Cornelia & Lorena, in their everyday battle to preserve Dacia Panoramic Cinema in Piatra Neamt, one of the last remaining cinemas in Romania today. A sweet portrait of a profession, passion and nostalgia in an Herculean fight to preserve a culture! (Edinburgh International Film Festival)
