Radu Jude won the Best Director award at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival for this grim depiction of Romania in the early 19th century. Policeman Costandin and his son Ionita travel the country in search of a fugitive Gypsy slave, revealing along the way a primitive and brutal society ruled by ruthless landowners and petty functionaries. Conditions are harsh and injustice routine in this barbarous world of arbitrary killings and cruel punishments in stark contrast to the picturesque beauty of the countryside through which the pair pass. Aferim! powerfully evokes this nightmare world and the attitudes and prejudices which shaped it. Not to be missed!
