I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians

The latest work by Berlinale Silver Bear winner Radu Jude (Aferim!).

A young artist is planning to reconstruct a historical event from 1941, during which the Romanian Army carried out ethnic cleansing on the Eastern Front.
One of contemporary Europe's most distinctive creators has come out with an ingeniously conceived film. While it unfolds slowly and in detail, it hits the viewer with a singular emotional punch.

Press Quotes

(VARIETY)

“Jude‘s ambitious meta-drama puts a bold modern twist on an infamous wartime massacre.”
