Closer to the Moon New Romanian Cinema Thurs Dec 5 @7:30 pm

CLOSER TO THE MOON

Making Waves 2013: New Romanian Cinema"                                                   

The true account of a group of high-ranking Jewish members of the nomenklatura, who, in 1959, staged what was to become known as the coup of the century: They robbed Romania’s National Bank, making it look like a film shoot. And this is only the beginning. Once arrested and prosecuted, they were forced to reenact their parts in the heist for a propaganda movie. Despite its tragic aspect, this incredible story, forever shrouded in mystery, gets an unexpectedly light treatment. One could even say that Vera Farmiga, Mark Strong, and Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd were having fun in the main roles.

Q&A filmmaker Nae Caranfil and join us for a reception following the screening.                                                                                                                                                        

Nae Caranfil. 2013. 110 m. NR. Romania , Romanian with subtitles.

This is a one night only event at the Burns and will probably sell out in advance.  Please purchase your tickets in advance.  You can either purchase at the box office or online.

Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK BEFORE THE FILM.  After the film we will meet again at the reception to discuss and socialize. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the left it is by the stairs. If you do not meet at the desk then look for me in the lobby afterwards. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meet up group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.
