The Distance Between Me and Me (Distanţa dintre mine şi mine)

Directed by Dana Bunescu, Mona Nicoară

  • Romania, USA 2019; 90 min
  • Original version: Romanian
  • Genre: Documentary


A portrait of Nina Cassian, a mesmerizing artist whose life was a continuous fight between ethics and aesthetics. She succeeds in protecting her poetry through fascism, communism, and an unwanted exile into late capitalism. From Ceaușescu’s Romania to her final years in America, forever a troublesome intellectual.
