Film Screening: 12:08 East of Bucharest
12:08 EAST OF BUCHAREST (A FOST SAU N-A FOST?)
6:00 PM, Browning Cinema, Debartolo Performing Arts Center
A local talk show host organizes an alcoholic professor and a pensioner known for playing Santa Claus to decide whether there was ever a revolution in their town Vaslui.
Alina Haliliuc, Associate Professor of Communication at Denison University, will introduce the film and lead a post-screening Q&A session.
As a rhetorician, Haliliuc reads a variety of cultural forms – from public debates and museums to live performances and film – with a curiosity for how they shape and reflect the affective, ethical, and political imagination of post-communist subjects. Her work may be found in such journals as The Journal of Popular Culture, Film Criticism, Communication, Culture & Critique, and Text and Performance Quarterly.
