The Phantom Father

  1. Tuesday, February 19, 2013 7:00 p.m.
Still image from the film The Phantom Father
An American professor embarks on an adventurous and amusing journey through Bucovina to find Sami the projectionist, the only person alive who can tell him anything about his Romanian Jewish descent. His symbolic journey is filled with danger, the unknown and the surreal, but finally rewarded with a double love; one romantic in nature, and the other for old cinema. Romanian and English languages with English subtitles. (HD Cam presentation)

Director Lucian Georgescu is scheduled to be present.

These events are sponsored by the Russian and East European Institute, Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program, Romanian Studies Organization, Global Village, Foster International Living and Learning Center and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Padraic Kenney.
