Stremt 89 (2012) Trailer
Trailer for the short documentary Stremt 89.
In 1989, in Romania, the anti-communist revolution was taking place on the streets of the big cities. But all around the country, people were waiting, in fear, in doubt, with contained excitement, in their trained paranoia, for something to change. In the small hunters village of Stremt, news traveled slow. So slow in fact, that only after they saw Ceausescu flee on television, did they decide to start their own revolution. Each man had a rifle and a theory, but most importantly, a cellar stacked with home made alcohol. So it was no surprise that soon enough, every neighbor behind a fence was a terrorist. 22 years later, the documentary follows what people thought they did, what they think they should have done, and how they would have been better off if they had done it differently.
