The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu


Dir. Andrei Ujica (2010).
A three-hour, unexplicated assemblage of official newsreels and occasional home movies, this autobiography earns its title by presenting Ceausescu’s image as he wanted to show himself—it’s a grotesque social psychodrama with mass deception and megalomania pushed past the absurd.

Fri., Sept. 9, 1, 4:30 & 8 p.m., 2011
