Refracting Democracy: Romanian Political Culture and New Wave Cinema

My research is situated between the realms of visual anthropology, postsocialist studies and the anthropology of Eastern Europe. It examines the ways in which visual culture, especially contemporary film, helps to reveal the challenges and aspirations currently experienced by Romanians as they transition from one regime of politics and values to another, and how the new Romanian cinema contributes to the cultural formation of the “New Europe.”
