Supported by Alserkal Avenue and Cinema Akil, the Romanian Film Nights will present two critically acclaimed Romanian films to audiences in the UAE. The Romanian Film Nights will begin on March 28 at 8 PM with Why Me? (De ce eu?) directed by Tudor Giurgiu. The film was premiered as part of the “Panorama” Section of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. “Why me” is a bitter legal thriller based on a real-life case of political corruption.
On March 30 at 8 PM we will close with the film Dogs (Câini) directed by Bogdan Mirica and premiered at the 69th Cannes Film Festival and was awarded the FIPRESCI Prize and nominated for the Golden Camera Award and the Un Certain Regard Award.
