About Collective:

2020. 109 m. Alexander Nanau. Magnolia Pictures. Romania. Romanian with English subtitles. NR.

After an explosive fire claims the lives of 27 people at Bucharest nightclub Colectiv, 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 the Sports Gazette to investigate. Just as a crucial tip exposes the culpability of Hexi Pharma, a local firm, the Hexi Pharma’s owner dies under mysterious circumstances, and the health minister quietly resigns amid the uproar—but this is only the first chapter in a thrilling, ever-twisting exposé. Closely tracking the efforts of the Gazette team as they methodically discover layer upon layer of fraud and criminal malfeasance, Alexander Nanau’s Collective is a fast-paced, real-time detective story about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times.

Collective is a part of year-round JBFC series Global Watch: Crisis & Social Action.
