How did Bucharest look in the documentary films between 1950 and 1980? And how do these films look through the eyes of Bucharesteans today?

We invite the Pantelimon residents of all ages to a film tour in the history of the Capital and its inhabitants, through a projection of documentary films produced by the “Alexandru Sahia” studio during the communist era. The projection will be followed by a discussion with experts and special guests.

The films we bring forward will help us better organize our memories of the old Bucharest and perhaps have a better understanding of the Bucharest of today.
