Dir. Alexander Nanau. Romania/Luxembourg, 2020, 109 mins. After a deadly, explosive fire at Bucharest nightclub Colectiv, officials reassure the public that surviving victims will receive the best treatment from Romanian health-care facilities. Weeks later, a rising casualty count leads intrepid reporters to investigate. Closely tracking the efforts of the Sports Gazette team as they methodically uncover layer upon layer of fraud and criminal malfeasance, Alexander Nanau’s Collective is a fast-paced, real-time docu-thriller about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times. Premiered at the 2019 Venice International Film Festival. A Magnolia Pictures release. View trailer.

“A gripping, despairing exposé of institutional injustice.” —Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
