Romanian White Nights

It is good to see Romanians have decided to import a beneficial event from our French friends. I am referring to the White Nights event which I have described in a previous post.
White Nights will be held in 16 Romanian cities so it looks like it will be an extended event for all Romanian insomniacs. The organizers invite us in the 4th November night to stay up and enjoy the artistical program which includes theatre plays, movies projections, 2 rock concerts, hip hop party and a lot of clubbing. The surprise is the graffiti contest gathering all the young artists willing to show their talent in this post modern art form.

One of the theatre plays will be "Belgrade trilogy" by Biliana Sbrljanovic with final year students from National Theatre Academy. For more details, you can look in my description from a previous post dedicated to this play in "Time for theatre" post.

During White nights we can view "Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul lumii". It is an interesting movie telling a story about two classmates breaking the bust of dictator Ceausescu in their school, during the Communism regime. The film has received very good reviews and has won "Un Certain Regard " award at the Cannes Festival for the Best Actress category.

I think it is a very good initiative of National Authority for Youth to promote this event and I will definitely attend to it. Who wants to join?

  • Sounds like fun. Not that keen on the whole event, but loved the radio ad! Quite good one.

  • I wish I would've gone to one of those events, but I was too lazy over the weekend... :)

    Heh, maybe next time...

  • Ali, unfortunately I didn't listen to the radio ad.
    Alex, I know exactly what you mean. I wanted to go but apparently I'm getting older and lazier by day :)
