This short documentary focusses on the circulation of illegal VHS films during the dictatorship of Ceausescu in Romania. The voiceover behind these translations was always the same, and the uncensored films were a ticket to escape the hardships of this regime.
A final image supercut of all 86 Academy award-winning Best Picture films, in retro-chronological order. It’s also a reminder of some of the rather forgettable films that won this award, compared to other more deserving creations (Crash, Shakespeare in Love, Driving Miss Daisy, just to name a few).
In this fast-paced video, you’ll see snippets and sound bites from some of the best movies out there. Yes it can be a bit overwhelming due to the very fast editing cuts, but it’s a reminder of how special cinema is.
