85e9a2fa-a239-4adf-a052-803381ebd114

Cartea cuprinde rapoartele agentilor de securitate, scrise timp de 129 de zile in 1948, 1949, si 1950, pe parcursul urmaririi tatalui autoarei, sociologul Anton Golopentia, ca si transcierile convorbirilor telefonice din acea perioada din casa lor. Mai cuprinde si declaratiile lui Anton Golopentia din timpul anchetelor, si de asemenea file de memorii. Cartea arunca o privire asupra istoriei Romaniei dupa cel de al 2-lea razboi mondial, in special asupra inceputului comunismului si represiunilor politice din Romania. In luna februarie a acestui an, cartea a ajuns deja pe rafturile marilor universitati americane, fiind apreciata ca un material de referinta de studenti, profesori, si cercetatori.

This book contains all the reports written during 129 days in 1948, 1949, and 1950 by the secret police agents of the Securitate charged with the surveillance of the author’s father, sociologist Anton Golopentia, as well as all the transcriptions of the phone conversations in their house at that time. It also brings together some of Golopentia’s declarations later on, while investigated as a detained witness, and personal memories. The book provides insights into post-WWII Eastern European history, particularly the beginning of the communist regime and political repression in Romania, and will be useful to researchers (historians, psychologists, anthropologists, and literary specialists), as well as professors and students in universities and schools.

Capra cu trei iezi / The Goat and Her Three Kids

Capra

February 22nd at 4 pm

Auburndale Community Library: 375 Auburn St., Newton, MA 

Desprinsa de lume, o mama singura cu trei copii se vede nevoita sa isi apere cu orice pret ce a mai ramas din familia ei de un ucigas cu sange rece. Bazata pe binecunoscuta poveste romaneasca “Capra cu trei iezi” a lui Ion Creanga, acesc scurt metraj isi propune sa dezvaluie adevarata natura a celebrei povesti de adormit copiii, si sa expuna publicului o alta perspectiva, una ce arata de fapt ce inseamna o tragedie, dincolo de cantece vesele si caractere simpatice. Filmul nu este recomandat copiilor sun 12 ani.
In 2019 scurt metrajul “Capra cu trei iezi” avandu-i in rolurile principale pe Maia Morgenstern and Marius Bodochi, regizat de Victor Canache produs de Luana Georgiţă a avut premiera la Festivalul International de Film Transilvania.
Victor Canache si Luana Georgiţă se afla in Statele Unite sa promoveze varianta de scurt metraj a filmului si sa adune cat mai multe resurse pentru a incepe pregatirile pentru varianta de lung metraj a filmului.
Asociatia Romanilor in New England le sprijina efortul si visul de a continua acest proiect. Speram ca ne veti fi alaturi la prezentarea scurt metrajului si la sesiune de intrebari si raspunsuri.
Orice donatie e binevenita si ii va ajuta pe producatori in efortul lor de aduce la lumina varianta de lung metraj a acestei povesti cu care multi dintre noi am crescut.

Secluded from the world, a single mother of three has to defend what’s left of her family, at all cost, from a cold blooded killer. Based on one of the best known Romanian fairy tales (The Goat and Her Three Kids by Ion Creanga), this short film aims to unveil the true nature of the famed bed time story and to treat the audience to a different perspective, one that offers a glimpse at what the tragedy actually looks like beyond the happy songs and colorful characters. The movie is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
In 2019 the short film The Goat and Her Three Kids starring Maia Morgenstern and Marius Bodochi,  directed by Victor Canache and produced by Luana Georgiţă premieres at Transilvania International Film Festival.
Victor Canache and Luana Georgiţă are in the United States to present the short version of the movie and to gather as many resources as possible to start the preparation of the long version.
The Association of Romanians in New England is supporting their efforts and their dream of continuing this project and we hope you can join us for the screening and the Q&A session.
Donations are welcome and will support their tour in the United States and their efforts to fulfill the dream of making the long version of a story that many of us grew up with.

Clara si timpul liber:

Ca în fiecare zi, Clara funcționara își vede cu conștiinciozitate de lucru, programând activitățile extra-școlare ale copiilor. Doar că azi, ca în nici o alta zi, în  Biroul Oficial de Ocupare a Timpului Oficial Liber totul pare sa meargă pe dos la propriu și la figurat. Înnebunită de dosare cu tabele și orare, dar mai ales de Vocea care nu îi îngăduie nici o pauză, Clara primește un telefon care îi amintește de ceva aproape uitat: faptul că și ea a fost odată copil. Sătulă de atâtea planificări, mintea începe sa îi umble brambura și scapă frâiele în care era atât de bine ținută imaginația. Va reuși oare Clara să găsească secretul eliberării timpului liber?

Un spectacol fără prea multe vorbe, cu umor și un strop de poezie despre frumusețea lucrurilor născute din întâmplare, neplanificate. De văzut împreună cu părinții.

Varsta 6+
Regie: Ana Turos

Intalnire cu regizoarea Victoria Baltag si filmul “Herman-omul din spatele teroarii”

Herman

Friday, September 20-st 7 PM
365 Belmont St, Belmont, MA 02478 – Proiectie film si sesiune Q&A cu regizoarea Victoria Baltag

Saturday, September 21-st 4 PM
375 Auburn St, Auburndale, MA 02466 – Proiectie film si sesiune Q&A cu regizoarea Victoria Baltag

Sunday, September 22-nd 12 PM
8 Addison St, Chelsea MA 02150 – Intalnire cu regizoarea Victoria Baltag si sesiune Q&A

Bazat pe o poveste reala, filmul “Herman-omul din spatele teroarii” descrie evenimentele petrecute in inchisoarea de la Pitesti, in Romania anilor 1949-1951, imediat dupa instaurarea regimului comunist, atunci cand studentii erau fortati sa devina membrii ai partidului comunist iar cei ce refuzau erau trecuti printr-un proces de ‘reeducare’ prin tortura fizica si mentala.

Multi ani, despre Experimentul Pitesti s-a stiut putin, adevaruri trunchiate sau deformate. Prin acest film producatorii doresc sa faca cunoscut apartea aceasta, trista, dar adevarata a istoriei Romaniei si sa aduca un omagiu celor ce au luptat importriva regimului.
Vizita regizoarei si producatoarei Victoria Baltag este o intalnire cu publicul avizat si cu cel dornic sa afle, o pledoarie pentru sustinerea unui film de lung metraj, 100% independent a carui finalizare depinde de strangerea de fonduri pentru a acoperi costurile de post-productie. In acest sens, va incurajam cu caldura sa sustineti acest proiect sau sa ne contactati personal pentru a va oferi variante pentru contributii. Donatiile pentru film se fac prin campania GoFundMe sau prin metodele recomandate la www.hermanfilm.com/donatii
Varianta regizorala a filmului, care va fi prezentata in timpul intalnirii este subtitrata in engleza, fiind astfel accesibil atat membrilor comunitatii romanesti, cat si publicului larg.
Filmul este un lung metraj-artistic cu Ion Caramitru în rol de suport, realizat după o documentare de peste patru ani în arhivele IICCMER (Institutul de investigare a crimelor comunismului), cu material din Arhivele Naţionale de Film înserate în lung-metraj, un film 100% independent, singurul film românesc finanţat din crowdsourcing, campanii naţionale şi internaţionale de colectare de fonduri, cu o vizibilitate în presa natională şi internatională de peste 4000 de ştiri (încă înainte de lansare). Filmările au avut loc în locaţii autentice (muzee, case memoriale, forturile din Bucureşti, fosta închisoare de la Piteşti, etc.) şi au fost finalizate în 2015. În proiect sunt implicaţi peste 600 de oameni. Filmarile au fost incheiate, mai are nevoie încă de fonduri pentru finalizare.
Noi, cei de la Asociatia Romanilor din New England, ne dorim ca prin acest evenimet sa putem sustinem acest efort de recuperare a adevarurilor istorice, chiar si a adevarurilor care dor, de a face vizibile lupta si sacrificiul celor 2000 de tineri supusi acestui “experiment”. Ne dorim sa facem parte dintre cei care cred si pot sa ajute realizarea acestui film. Va invitam sa fiti alaturi de noi.

The movie depicts the true story of the events which took place in Romania between 1949 and 1951 when, following the establishment of the Communist regime, all students were compelled to become members of the Party. Consequently, those who refused were imprisoned and ‘re-educated’. The re-education phenomenon, a concept borrowed from the Soviet educator A.S. Makarenko, relied on the assumption that every person can become a ‘new entity’ through ‘re-education’, which in this instance was achieved by means of both physical and mental torture.
One of the darkest page of the dark years of the communist regime in Eastern Europe, years that cut, changed or crushed lives and pushed the history of some of the countries with 200 years back.
The subject of the Piteti Experiment was kept away of the public eye until recently, and therefore we believe it is impetuous that as many people as possible learn about it. To understand before to blame. To forgive before forget.
This is the first feature film on this subject and it is funded through
public donations, thus becoming a 100% independent project, initiated by Connections Romania’s team of young professionals, passionate about history and cinematography.
While they aim to raise awareness on such a vital yet hidden part of Romanias history,they are also want to raise funds for the post-production, which represents the 20% that we’re missing to complete this true story film.
Please come and meet Victoria Baltag, producer and director of this film, listen and watch the stories behind the project and get involved on the Q&A session following the screening.
Following the trend of the successful Romanian trend in the cinematography, we wish to see soon this film on the big International Film.

Ileana Princess Of Romania

ILEANA, PRINCESS OF ROMANIA

History is one of the three main genres in Western theater alongside tragedy and comedy, although it originated, in its modern form, thousands of years later than the other primary genres.
Dramatization by Edith Negulici after the autobiographical novel “I Live Again”, the performance about Princess Ileana’s life is a charming and dramatic evocation of the main moments in the life of the author and of the history she had lived.

“Yes, to live again, because after I left home, which for me was always Romania, I was as dead. Not the circumstances were hard to bear, but even the need to live. I never doubted of the necessity of being close to my six children, but inside, the “personal self” that existed independent of the mother, the wife, the friend who I was – the essential ego, on which all was built – suffered a deadly shock when I was dismissed from my people.” – Princess Ileana

In 1950, she and the children moved to the United States, where she bought a house in Newton, Massachusetts.

In 1961, Ileana entered the Orthodox Monastery of the Protection of the Mother of God, in Bussy-en-Othe, France. On her tonsuring as a monastic, in 1967, Sister Ileana was given the name Mother Alexandra. She moved back to the United States and founded the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania, the first English language Orthodox monastery in North America. She was the third female descendant of Queen Victoria to become a Mother Superior in a convent of her own foundation. She served as abbess until her retirement in 1981, remaining at the monastery until her death.

Princess Ileana fought for others, was at the service of her people, and served those in need. She created hospitals, canteens, nursing schools, all sorts of ways to raise funds for wounded, orphaned, ill, poor, less fortunate than her, who was the daughter of an important King, Ferdinand Integrator and a Queen of Excellence, Queen Mary of Romania.
The life of Princess Ileana/Mother Alexandra, imposes her as a model to be followed and legitimizes her in front of posterity.”
