17/10/2021 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square , London, SW1X 8PH

The fascinating biopic of one of the most powerful and popular female leaders Romania has had is coming to RCI London this Sunday, 17 October, from 5 PM in the presence of the leading actress, Roxana Lupu. Chaired by the theater producer Leonard Bacica, the screening will be followed by a Q & A session.

Marie of Romania is among the most intriguing royals of the early 20th century and the historical diorama focuses on her attendance at the Paris Peace Conference which was held in 1919 in the aftermath of World War One. Queen Marie spent several weeks in England and France negotiating on behalf of her country, attempting to get full recognition for the altered make up of Romania following the Great War. The film examines her role in the negotiations and the opposition she faced at home and abroad as her royal family faced struggles in a changing world.
