Gently Anastasia Was Passing
This 1979 Alexandru Tatos drama is set in a border town occupied by the Germans on the Danube in 1944. There are plenty of collaborators eager to please the Germans. A number of the young men join the partisans, which by orders of the Germans are to be killed on sight. When a Serbian partisan is killed and the orders are to have his body thrown into the village, forbidding anyone to bury it, Anastasia refuses to obey the order. (100 min, English subtitles)
Please join American Romanian Festival Executive Director Marian Tanau and Ramona Uritescu-Lombard, an expert in Romanian cinema and lecturer in the German and Comparative Literature departments at UM, for a discussion and Q&A after the film.
Part of the Fourth Annual American Romanian Festival, this event is sponsored by Michigan Arts Council and Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts, University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Center for Russian and East European Studies, and the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
