SECOND OSCARS 2021 NOMINATION:

“COLLECTIVE”,co-produced by Luxembourg firm Samsa Film, has been nominated for two awards in two categories: “Best Documentary Feature” and “Best International Feature Film”!!!! The Romanian documentary, directed by Alexander Nanau, also won a European Film Prize for the best documentary of the year.

Synposis “Collective”:    On 30th October 2015, a serious fire broke out at the Colectiv nightclub in Bucharest. It was one of the worst disasters in recent Romanian history, with 27 people killed and 180 injured. Fierce protests erupted when 37 of the injured subsequently died from bacterial infections. Director Alexander Nanu followed a team of investigative journalists at the Romanian sports newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor as they uncovered a vast health care fraud that siphoned off urgent hospital funding and diluted disinfectants while enriching the country’s most powerful moguls, hospital managers, doctors and politicians.

“COLLECTIVE” is a powerful and shocking verité story, that follows Gazeta Sporturilor’s investigation into this hospital corruption in the wake of the fire. Featuring incredible access to journalists, politicians, survivors, and whistleblowers, it is a must-see social justice documentary, which highlights the essential role of a free press in calling out corruption.
