The Trial /Procesul  

film, Bucharest, 37'24" / 2004-2005  

A film constructed on a text that seems to be a theatrical performance rather than the transcript of a trial. The camera traces facades of communist block housing, depressingly unchanged over the past fifteen years, as the transcript from the trial of Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife, Elena, is read without pause or emotion. The intensity of the film is created by the tension between the dizzying and unceasing movement of the camera and the continuous and expressionless reading of the trial script, recording a very dark episode of modern history.
