December 22. Somewhere East of Bucharest, two heroes share their moments of revolutionary glory on local TV, to celebrate the revolution that ousted Romanian dictator Ceausescu 16 years ago. But phone-in viewers’ claims seem to question whether the revolution ever took place. Wryly funny and highly original 12:08 East of Bucharest captures some of the contentious narratives of this epoch-defining event, as well as the bitter feeling of hopes dashed in its wake.
