Videograms of a Revolution


Dir. Andrei Ujică and Harun Farocki. 1992, 106 mins. Using amateur video, footage shot by the state film industry, and excerpts of broadcasts from a demonstrator-controlled Bucharest TV studio in late December 1989, this chronology of the Romanian uprising that overthrew dictator Nicolae Ceausescu shows how media technology not only records but fosters historic change.

Free with Museum admission.
