Quod Erat Demonstrandum

Film Screening
Thursday, February 18, 2016, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Quod erat demonstrandum (feature film, 2013, in Romanian with English subtitles, directed by Andrei Gruzsniczki, 107 min.)


“Not only the physical elements of mid-1980s Romania are captured in “Quod erat demonstrandum,” but also the intangible atmosphere of cautionary hope, fear, and betrayal that permeated that society. Andrei Gruzsniczki’s sophomore feature, handsomely shot on black-and-white film, takes a progressively involving look at two academics who have run afoul of the Securitate (Romania’s secret service), revealing the compromises of the soul that many were driven to under the regime.” (Jay Weissberg, Variety) The film premiered at the Rome Film Festival where it won the Jury Special Prize. 

The screening is attached to the course "Counter-Cultures and Power During State Socialism." 

In cooperation with the Romanian Cultural Institute, Budapest
