The first film is the winner of the International Audience Award and the opening film of the 16th Verzió Film Festival:
directed by Alexander Nanau, Romania, Luxembourg, 2019, 109 min
In Romanian and English with Hungarian and English subtitles
In 2015, 27 people perished in a tragic fire at the Romanian music club, Colectív, and a shocking 37 more died in hospitals due to inadequate facilities and rampant infections. Following the tragedy, masses were taken to the streets in protest, and a team of investigative journalists started to uncover a vast corruption network in the health care system.
The screening is followed by a discussion, in Hungarian.
Our guest will be Gabriella Lantos, health policy analyst, and Márton Asbóth, Head Of Privacy Project at Hungarian Civil Liberties Union and coordinator of the campaign against the hospital infections. Moderator: Etelka Tamás
Admission is free. Seating is on a first come first served basis and subject to capacity.
