Dir. Andrei Ujic─â. 2010, 180 mins. 35mm. A deftly composed montage, The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu was edited from thousands of hours of archival footage—both state-sanctioned and private—documenting the rise and fall of the socialist Romanian leader, and the traumatized nation he left after his execution in 1989. This work is an astonishing study of the intoxicating and corrupting effects of power and the ways that world leaders attempt to stage-manage history. Winner of the Cinema Eye Honors Spotlight Award.
