THE GENERATION OF SACRIFICE (20', France, 2011, dir: Jean Christophe)

The unsettling THE GENERATION OF SACRIFICE innovatively mixes the animation, the archive collage and the fictional soundtrack, to recreate the terror of the communist Romania of the 80's, when the Secret Police aparatus included even very young spies, high school teenagers, convinced to betray their own family and friends. Starting from the Secret Police files, the French filmmaker JEAN CHRISTOPHE makes a sharp and disturbingly topical X-ray of the Romanian mindsets: "After a trip to Romania in 2010, I discovered with surprise how much the recent communist past is still present in the Romanians' daily life. Many of them use to say "nothing has changed": the country became neo-liberal in a violent way, but at the political level, the same old generations are in power". (JEAN CHRISTOPHE)
