The Dead Nation

The Dead Nation

A work of startling power and originality, acclaimed director Radu Jude’s documentary-essay THE DEAD NATION examines the rise of anti-Semitism in Romania prior to and during World War II almost entirely through audio of diary entries belonging to a Jewish doctor and black-and-white photographs of provincial life in Romania between the years 1937 and 1944. From the director of AFERIM!, THE DEAD NATION is an extraordinary, urgent work; one that explores the individual experience against the enormity of history, while offering a vivid portrait of a divided time that speaks to the uncertainties of our own age.
