According to a press release, the program kicks up on Wednesday, April 27, at 7 p.m. with the gala premiere of Oana Bujgoi Giurgiu’s documentary „Occasional Spies.” The film recreates the story of some unusual espionage that marked the outbreak of World War II: the recruitment of young Zionists from Palestine, who were then sent back to their countries of origin in Eastern Europe, including Romania, to gather information about the Germans, based on facts and testimonies.
The film will be screened in the presence of the filmmakers and dignitaries such as Israel’s ambassador to Romania, David Saranga, and Romania’s ambassador to Israel, Radu Ioanid.
On Thursday, April 28, beginning at 7:00 p.m., the audience is welcomed to see David Pujol’s documentary „Salvador Dali. In Search of Immortality,” which provides new light on the great artist’s life through previously unseen stories and documents.
The „Windseeker,” the debut of Mihai Sofronea, winner of the FIPRESCI Award at the Sofia Film Festival 2022, is slated for Saturday, April 30, at 5.00 pm.
The screening will be attended by film director Mihai Sofronea and actor Dan Bordeianu and other crew members, who will engage in a post-viewing discussion with the audience.
„Look at the Sky,” directed by Georgian Alexandre Koberidze and winner of the FIPRESCI Award at the 2021 Berlinale, and „Mommy”/”Little Mom,” a story about childhood and the relationship between mother and daughter nominated for the BAFTA Awards in 2021, are among the titles on the Cinematheque’s program.
According to Agerpres, TIFF Cinematheque screenings will take place every week until May 29, after which the program will restart in the fall. Meetings with filmmakers, debates, and roundtables with art and film critics will be part of the program.
