A Golden Age That Wasn’t

Cinematheque of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art will screen the feature film ‘Tales from the Golden Age’ on December 26 at 4 pm.
It depicts the final 15 years of the Ceaușescu regime, the worst regime in Romania’s contemporary history. Nonetheless, the propaganda machine of the time would often refer to his brutal rule as ‘the golden age’. The film tells the most popular urban myths of the period -- Comic, bizarre, and surprising myths.
Humor is what kept Romanians alive, and Tales from the Golden Age aims to re-capture that mood, portraying the survival of a nation having to face the twisted logic of a dictatorship on a daily basis.
Nicolae Ceaușescu and his wife Elena were executed by soldiers in December 1989. An episodic film, it is directed by Ioana Uricaru, Hanno Höffer, Razvan Marculescu, Constantin Popescu, Cristian Mungiu and Hanno Hofer, Tiwall.com wrote.
The venue is at the western side of Laleh Park, on N. Karegar Street.
