Cinergy: Corneliu Porumboiu

A Masterclass with director Corneliu Porumboiu (*1975), a leading person of the very contemporary Romanian New Wave.

Corneliu Porumboiu (b. 1975, Vaslui, Romania) studied at the National University of Theater and Film in Bucharest (2003). His shorts Gone with the Wine (Pe aripile vinului, 2002) and A Trip to the City (Calatorie la oras, 2003), and the medium-length Liviu’s Dream (Visul lui Liviu, 2003) – which discusses the abortion ban under Ceauşescu as a backdrop to the story of a young man, his aspirations and the notion of truth – brought him several international prizes, including a Cinéfondation Award at Cannes in 2004. 12:08 East of Bucharest (A fost sau n-afost?, 2006), his feature film debut which won the Caméra d’Or at Cannes, was screened in KVIFF’s East of the West competition in 2006. He triumphed again at Cannes with two subsequent films, Police, Adjective (Poliţist, adjektiv, 2009 – Un Certain Regard Jury Prize) and The Treasure(2015 – A Certain Talent Prize, Un Certain Regard).
