NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – Sneak Preview

An absurdist take on the incredible but real account of a group of high-ranking Jewish Communists who robbed Romania’s National Bank in 1959 by pretending they were shooting a movie. Also true, once arrested and sentenced to death, they were forced to reenact the heist for a government propaganda film. Caranfil’s black comedy, which stars Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones), imagines the protagonists as fully cognizant of the sociopolitical inanities that surround them.

Director: Nae Caranfil | Romania/USA | 2013 | 110m | English

CO-PRESENTED BY: Tauber Institute for the Study of European Jewry at Brandeis University
