New York by Sieranevada
Time & Location
About The Event
We are glad to be partnering with Spectacle Theater, the Williamsburg boutique venue with some of the most imaginative and daring programming in the whole of New York City, for a limited run of Sieranevada, Cristi Puiu’s masterpiece and Romania’s submission to the Oscars in 2016. Rarely seen outside Romania, the film is a disenchanted exposure of family life and recent Romanian history through a series of eye-opening vignettes, put together by the visionary helmer with consummate skill and brilliantly performed by an expert ensemble cast.
“A bewildering, bitter, and amusing affair...” – Elina Alter, Bomb
“This is ensemble acting of a remarkably high order.” – Justin Chang, Variety
“It’s like Seinfeld, but on DMT.” – Steve Macfarlane, LiveJournal
