Between Revolutions (2023) Romanian Cinema: Making Waves


Documentary/essay/drama is a beautiful and haunting film about two women who met at the University in Bucharest and formed a friendship that continued through letters when one of them returned to Iran after the revolution.

Blending letters with period footage and some poetry this film is more like a dream then a documentary. Watching this on a big screen in a darkened room I drifted off to another time and place. Carried along by the marriage of images and sound I found myself connecting to the women in ways that a more conventional telling.  I felt the relationship.

This is magical filmmaking and a must see.
