A timeless classic of the documentary in a new digital version. A cult film for creative use with archival materials. A masterpiece to be looked at today for the topicality of the issues in relation to the Russian situation.

In Europe in the fall of 1989, history took place before our very eyes. Farocki and Ujica’s Videograms shows the Rumanian revolution of December 1989 in Bucharest in a new media-based form of historiography.
Demonstrators occupied the television station [in Bucharest] and broadcast continuously for 120 hours, thereby establishing the television studio as a new historical site. Between December 21, 1989 (the day of Ceaucescu’s last speech) and December 26, 1989 (the first televised summary of his trial), the cameras
recorded events at the most important locations in Bucharest, almost without exception.

With the participation of the author Andrei Ujica
