The Romanian Cinematheque’s autumn season debuts with a controversial film that claims precedence in several respects: it is the first documentary included in our programme, it is screened in London for the first time and it is made by a first-time director. Do not miss Tom Wilson’s 'The Bucure╚Öti Experiment' on 25 September!

Youth takes the stage at the November concert of our longevous chamber music series as the 'Monte' Piano Trio, made of Francesco Sica – violin, Claude Frochaux – cello and Irina Botan – piano, tackles the rarely played 'Piano Trio No. 2 in A minor' by George Enescu. Praised by critics for their impeccable technique, the trio are expected to offer a memorable evening of glorious scores.
We are proud to present the one-off London performance of 'Absolute!', starring internationally acclaimed Marcel Iure┼č in a modern, flamboyant take of classical works by Ion Creang─â, the greatest Romanian storyteller.
