CINEPUB suffers, cries and shouts.

In other words, it does things it hasn’t done so far. And this because cinepub.ro is not only a quiet companion, a platform, a collection of online films or a robot. Cinepub has a soul, is a community of friends, of people we know and especially of people we don’t know, viewers, authors, contributors and volunteers, filmmakers and film lovers, a community of Romanians from here and everywhere, expats and foreigners. Last but not least, Cinepub is a small team, with a great soul, and some of its elder members spent some nights of fire&ice in December ’89 at the Royal Palace and the University Square.

This is why today, when our compatriots, the young and the old, women and children, are mocked in the streets and spitted on their souls for the next five generations, we cannot resume the screening anymore. We were already mourning, as we prepared for today s premiere “Bucharest Non-Stop”, the latest film of the great actor Ion Besoiu, recently passed away. But because Bucharest is now 24/7 out in the streets, because they have stolen not only our revolution, but also our children’s peaceful nights, this Thursday is no show. There’s no time for cinema now. We hope to come back in the hall. We paid a high price for the ticket.

E pericoloso sporgersi

„Nae Caranfil showed up like a tornado in 1992, like a promise of a new wave which was never to come together years later” (Mihai Chirilov, Re:Public, may 2005).

First screened in Cannes, in Quinzaine de realisateurs, E pericoloso sporgersi is the debut film of an audience darling. His films have become cult in terms of memorable lines. „The hand reaching out without a story doesn’t get anything for free” is just an example.
