See this film retrospective: Andrei Ujica and the Montage Of History at the HFA

Excerpt from Out of the Present (1999)

Romania has produced some great feature film directors of late; lesser known are its outstanding documentarians. Such as Andrei Ujica, who takes found footage and archival material and shapes them into poetic - and sometimes self-referential - investigations into the past and its implications for the present and future. The Harvard Film Archive's retrospective Andrei Ujica and the Montage Of History opens tonight with Out of the Present (1999), a chronicle of Soviet cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev's 18 month 1989 mission on the Mir space station intercut with the epic historical events that occurred during that time back on earth. The Archive is in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Friday, October 7 @ 7 pm | $9; $7 students, seniors | 617.495.4700 or
