FOX HUNTER – feature film

Communism is the last to die

“Fox Hunter” is a Romanian movie that carries heavy political meanings, by the well known Romanian director Stere Gulea, adapted from the novel “Încă de pe atunci Vulpea era Vânătorul” (Der Fuchs war damals schon der Jäger) written by Herta Müller, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2009. A production that focuses on the tense context before the 1989 uprise in Timisoara which led to the outbreak of the Revolution resulting in the fall of the communist regime in Romania. The talented Oana Pellea, at the time in the first part of her career, played the part of the main female character, closely watched by the secret police.

Plot summary: Set in Romania in the winter of 1989, when the revolution is about to break out and the state secret police (Securitate) is active. A teacher encourages her pupils to act in politically non-conformist ways and she finds herself under surveillance from the secret service.

Q&A

Questions and Answers, in short Q&As, is the acronym used by the film festivals to name the discussions held after the screening between the public and the team behind the film. We bring to you for watching online an important number of Romanian short films, and after the „screening” we invite you to a Q&A session involving questions that had been asked by our Cinepub team or already addressed by our viewers on our Facebook page and the filmmakers’ answers. The Q&As represent a way to find out more about the people behind the films: directors, scriptwriters, directors of photography, producers or actors.

Cinepub is an online platform dedicated to Romanian cinema, a project established by GAV in partnership with Google.
It is a project that aims to bring to the audiences not only films of well known directors, but also independent productions made by those with a real passion for film but at the beginning of their careers.
