Dir. Alexander Nanau | 109min, 2019

Romanian documentarian Alexander Nanau’s fast-paced thriller exposes fraud and criminal malfeasance after an explosive fire claims the lives of 27 people at a Bucharest nightclub.

NYT Critic’s Pick

After an explosive fire claims the lives of 27 people at Colectiv, a Bucharest nightclub, officials reassure the public that surviving victims will receive care in facilities that are “better than in Germany.” Weeks later, a rising casualty count leads intrepid reporters at Romanian newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor to investigate. Just as a crucial tip exposes local firm Hexi Pharma’s culpability, the firm’s owner dies under mysterious circumstances and the health minister quietly resigns amid the uproar. But this is just the first chapter in an ever-twisting exposé.

Uncovering layer upon layer of fraud and criminal malfeasance, Alexander Nanau’s fast-paced, real-time documentary unfolds like a thriller—ultimately revealing a story about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times.
