Making Waves at Roxy Cinema

Making Waves is the 18th annual New Romanian Cinema Film Festival taking place at premiere art house cinemas across New York City this Spring and is co-presented by Film ETC Association in partnership with Roxy Cinema New York, DCTV’s Firehouse Cinema, and IFC Center. The festival is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating the best in Romanian contemporary cinema.

Roxy Cinema is proud to partner for the second year with the festival to present a diverse selection of four films. Travel back in time with LIBERTATE by Tudor Giurgiu and OCCASIONAL SPIES by Oana Bujgoi Giurgiu, both historical reenactments of lesser-known chapters of the Romanian Revolution and World War II, respectively.

Thrill-seekers can get their fix with BOSS by Bogdan Mirică, a unique exploration of the noir genre within the current landscape of Romanian cinema. Finally, the festival continues its tradition of spotlighting Eastern European cinema with a special screening of the timely masterpiece SHADOWS OF FORGOTTEN ANCESTORS, celebrating the centennial of director Sergei Parajanov. Though filmed in Soviet Ukraine by an Armenian director, this visually stunning and emotionally rich film beautifully portrays the unique customs and folklore of the Hutsul people of the Carpathian Mountains.

Director and producer Oana Bujgoi Giurgiu will join us for Q&As following all screenings of Libertate and Occasional Spies.
