CLUJ-NAPOCA: I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians by Radu Jude will screen in the Romanian Days at the 18th Transilvania IFF (31 May-9 June 2019). The film was awarded the Crystal Globe for best film at the 53rd Karlovy Vary IFF and was Romania’s bid for the Oscars.

In this black comedy Radu Jude once again returns to past events in the Romanian history that are still plaguing the society. The film tackles a delicate historical subject, the massacre of approximately 20,000 Jewish people by the Romanian army in Odessa in 1941. The script penned by Jude follows a young theatre director who plans to do a reenactment of the Odessa massacre during a cultural event in contemporary Bucharest.

I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians / Îmi este indiferent dacă în istorie vom intra ca barbari was produced by Romania’s Hi Film Productions in coproduction with the Czech company endorfilm, France’s Les Films d’Ici, Bulgaria’s Klas Film and Germany’s Komplizen Film. The project was supported by the SEE Network, the Romanian Film Centre, Aide aux Cinémas du Monde, the Czech State Cinematography Fund, the Bulgarian National Film Center and Eurimages.

In Romania, the film was released by Micro Film on 28 September 2018. The Czech cinema distributor Pilot Film released the film on 28 February 2019.

The film was awarded for best script and best supporting actor (Alexandru Dabija) at the Romanian Gopo Awards on 19 March 2019.
