A film by Eugen Jebeleanu
(Romania, 2020, 82 min.)

1 show for this event

Cristi is a policeman who keeps his homosexuality and his relationship with Hadi, a young man, a secret, knowing that they would be stigmatized among the military ranks in which he works. During a police intervention at a movie theater, where a group of ultra-nationalists has sabotaged the screening of an LGBT+ film, one of the spectators opposing the protesters threatens Cristi with revealing his secret, upsetting the fragile balance the young man thought he had built. A drama with a dense script charged with emotional tension that shows us the harsh reality of a repressed identity that is forced to accept shame and silence because of a macho environment.
