Original Romanian Title: Îmi este indiferent dacă în istorie vom intra ca barbari 

Introduced by Nanovic Faculty Fellow Jim Collins, professor and department chair of film, television, and theatre, at the University of Notre Dame.

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.
