Film Historian Adina Brădeanu on Forbidden Documentaries of the Stalinist Era

Updated: Apr 15





About the Event


Oxford scholar Adina Brădeanu, one of our foremost film historians, tells the turbulent story in the Stalinist 1950s of the Sahia Studio, the documentary production outlet of communist Romania, at the Orphan Film Symposium, organized by the NYU Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies and Tisch School of the Arts together with the Museum of the Moving Image. The Romanian-British film historian will illustrate the fight of Romanian documentarians to fend off the artistically devastating consequences of Soviet-inspired policies with "A Film Studio in Bucharest Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary", an "orphaned" production of 1955 film that, for political as well as aesthetic reasons, was shelved indefinitely by the studio bosses.


Dr. Adina Brădeanu's participation at the event taking place at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens (Kaufman Astoria Studios) between April 10-13 is supported by RCI New York.

About the Researcher


Dr. Adina Brădeanu is research associate at the Oxford Research Centre in The Humanities with an interdisciplinary background in modern languages and literatures, cinema, and political studies. She is also the Subject Consultant for Romanian Studies at Taylor Institution Library (Bodleian Libraries). Following work in the audio-visual archive of an ethnography museum in Bucharest (National Museum of the Romanian Peasant), she conducted historical and ethnographic research on the institutional culture of a documentary studio (The Sahia Studio) operating in Romania between 1950 and 1990. Adina curated "VINTAGE SAHIA", a digitization and outreach project (2013-2019), which resulted in a set of pioneering film resources for research and education. More recently, she worked on the interplay between memory and film practice, political violence and cinematic imagination, and on “ephemeral” non-fiction films as sources for historical knowledge.

I had the opportunity to interact with Paramount Network Media's customer service team and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed. The representatives were not only knowledgeable and efficient, but also incredibly friendly and accommodating, also find customer service contacts at https://paramount-network.pissedconsumer.com/customer-service.html . They went above and beyond to address my concerns and ensure that I had a positive experience. The level of professionalism and attention to detail displayed by the team truly set them apart from other customer service departments I have dealt with in the past. Overall, my experience with Paramount Network Media's customer service was exceptional and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of assistance.
