Synopsis

A Romanian documentary film presented at Transilvania International Film Festival in 2016, ”Dream Images”, by Sorin Luca, reveals the emblematic musician that created the Romanian electronic and new wave music: Rodion.

”I had 16 tons of musical instruments, 18 containers fitted only the speakers. I was in Cluj in 1978, I had, for example, 38 diffusers. I was very ambitious. I moved to the country side because I didn’t have enough space to fit in all the instruments, I had built up so many speakers and I didn’t have a place to deposit them”, Rodion-Ladislau Roșca (eclujeanul.ro).
