Salonul de proiecte invites you Wednesday, October 15th, 19.00, at the presentations made by Olga Ștefan and Ștefan Constantinescu.
The event is part of a series of conferences, screenings, presentations, discussions called Evening classes, organised by Salonul de proiecte, MNAC Anexa, in October and November.

The presentation proposed by Olga Ștefan, The Imagination as Site for Resistance in Today’s Third Cinema, starts from the concept of Third Cinema, initially developed at the end of the ’60s by Fernando Solanas and Octavio Getino in order to define a cinematographic practice that is built in opposition to the american film industry and the auteur european one. She will analyse the intersection between cinematography and visual arts and will discuss imagination as a terrain of political resistance in the practice of Ericka Beckman and Ștefan Constantinescu.

Afterwards, Ștefan Constantinescu will talk about the ways Towards a New Cinema influenced his works. His latest movie, Six Big Fish (2013), will be screened and he will talk about the theme of memory in relation to his works Archive of Pain (2000), Dacia 1300, my generation (2003), Passagen (2005), Dacia, my love (2009) and the theme of intimacy, as it is approached in Troleibuzul 92 (2009), Family Dinner (2012) or Six Big Fish.
