The Pitesti Experiment

Following the establishment of the Communist regime, all students were compelled to become members of the Party. Consequently, those who refused were imprisoned and 're-educated'.

The re-education phenomenon, a concept borrowed from the Soviet pedagog A.S. Makarenko, relied on the assumption that every person can become a 'new entity' through 're-education', which in this instance was achieved by means of both physical and mental torture.

The subject of the Pitesti Experiment was kept out of the public eye until recently, and therefore we believe it is impetuous that as many people as possible learn about it.

The film is fully independent and almost ready. We are raising funds specifically for the 2nd installment of the sound editing.

Cinema is one of the most powerful tools to ignite change.

Good films are a pleasure to see. Great films change HOW you see.

Furthermore, the power of filmmaking takes more and more room in the society :‘‘no saint, no pope, no general, no sultan has ever had the power that a filmmaker has: the power to talk to hundreds of millions of people for two hours in the dark’’. (Frank Capra)

In a world where images and motion pictures take place more predominantly in the society, we see the necessity to analyse, understand and debate this world.
