In the autumn and winter of 1989, history unfolded before our eyes.

Through the show Romanian Diary. 1989 I propose to document the Revolution of '89.

We start from the confessions and images from the personal archive of NTB actors and we reach the protagonists as they are nowadays, after three decades.

Romania has celebrated 30 years since the Revolution of '89.

On this occasion, we ask ourselves: how do we relate to history?

Where are the stories of the so-called "ordinary people", who often turn out to be rather extraordinary?

Where are the personal, subjective memories that make up the fine texture of a life, whether it is better or less well lived?

The project “Romanian Diary. 1989” is based on interviews with actors whose unfiltered opinions, whether personal, civic or social, are intertwined to provide the “bigger picture” of a historical event. The multimedia show will give viewers the opportunity to compose a powerful and very humane puzzle. History is contemplated in terms of personal biographies. Research, image and sound make up the multimedia universe that completes the stories of the actors.

Why history with a smallinitial?

Because we seem to know the capitalized History.

We know when the Union was, we know how Ceausescu became president and we also know how the communist regime ended in our country. The purpose of "Romanian Diary. 1989" is to understand a little better what life was like at that time, not only from the perspective of the remarkable moments of history.

Everyone has a different opinion about how he was at the Revolution, whether he lived it or not.

Most of the information that the population repeats are "the official ones", thus forgetting even their personal history.

We try to remove from the personal archive certain aspects that did not necessarily go into what the official history wanted to preserve. Thus, the aim would be, by combining these two types of images (official and private), to succeed in prompting people to compose a more nuanced image of the 1989 Revolution.
