From the Oscars to our Cinematheque

19/03/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute London, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X 8PH

We are pleased to be hosting, at the Romanian Cinematheque, Adrian Sitaru’s powerful and unsettling 'The Fixer', a neo-realist tragedy for the modern world. The film, depicting the sordid realities of journalism, represents Romania at the Oscars and was included in the selection of several festivals like Film Fest Gent, Cairo International Film Festival, D'A Film Festival Barcelona, goEast Festival and Torino Film Festival.

Followed by a Q&A with actor Tudor Aaron Istodor.


'The Fixer' follows the story of Radu (Tudor Aaron Istodor), an aspiring journalist at a French press agency in Bucharest. When Radu finds out about Anca (Diana Spatarescu), a 14 years old prostitute who has been repatriated from France, he is driven by ambition to prove himself as a reporter. But the further he follows the story, the more he begins to question the moral boundaries of journalism.
