1989 Romania. Videogrammes of a Revolution

Filmscreening und discussion with Andrei Ujica (Berlin/Karlsruhe)
June 14th, 2009

In ten days in 1989, a rebellion in Romania overthrew the government and executed leader Nicolai Ceaucescu and his wife. Demonstrators then occupied the television station and broadcasted continuously for 120 hours. Andrei Ujica’s film “Videograms of a Revolution” is a condensation of 125 hours of video material documenting the chronology of these astounding events – revealing precisely, how a “revolution” is made by “televisio” and “video”.

The video lecture by Andrei Ujica takes place in the context of project seminar “State of Exception! Revolutionary Stance in art(theory), film and theatre”.
