Chuck Norris vs. Communism

Ilinca Calugareanu / RO, 2015 / 83 min.

In the years leading up to the downfall of dictator Ceaușescu, films from the imperialist US were of course taboo. As is well known, however, it is the forbidden fruit that whets the appetite. Director Ilinca Calugareanu uses a mix of documentary and feature film to show how illegal films managed to reach their public on video.
