Don’t mention the war!

On paper, a “metafictional interrogation of Romanian antisemitism with nods to Bertolt Brecht, Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Jean-Luc Godard” can sound a bit dry and unwieldy but I DO NOT CARE IF WE GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS BARBARIANS is the very opposite. Once again demonstrating his unique talent for blending humour, social criticism and complex intellectual issues, Radu Jude (AFERIM!, BIFF 2015) turns this story of an ambitious theatre director who clashes with group of WW2 reenactors into a satirical skewering of the role of national history modern-day Europe.

I DO NOT CARE IF WE GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS BARBARIANS is in our main competition programme for international fiction, Cinema Extraordinaire.
