The Dead Nation
Documentary: Romania (2017)
Director: Radu Jude
Running time: 83 mins
Romanian with English subtitles

The Dead Nation is a documentary-essay, which shows a stunning collection of photographs from a Romanian small town in the 1930's and 1940's. The soundtrack, composed mostly from excerpts taken from the diary of a Jewish doctor from the same era, shows us what the photographs do not: the rising of the anti-Semitism and eventually a harrowing depiction of the Romanian Holocaust, a topic which is not very talked about in the contemporary Romanian society.‌

Our film series is organised in partnership with BEMIS Scotland and The Iona Community, with the support of the University of Glasgow's Equality and Diversity Unit.

Screenings are accompanied by Q&A sessions for everyone to share views and thoughts in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. 

You are welcome to gather in the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) Café following each screening and join in our informal discussions.
