Romanian director Cristian Mungiu, winner of the Palme d’Or Award at the latest Cannes Film Festival, said at the opening of Romania’s Transylvania Film Festival this weekend that he wanted to drop making films about the communist era in Romania and that his future flick would deal with a current events subject.

Mungiu also dismissed charges from a Romanian screenplay writer that he copied the idea of another film project, saying that the common feature of his award-winning film, “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”, and of the “original” project - abortion during the communist era - was far from a real argument to support such charges.

“Banning abortion during the communist era can be an inspiration for many, what is important is how these ideas become fact”, Mungiu said.

He also said that these days “there are too many films about the communist time, not because directors found inspiration in one another, but because that is how happened. And there are many subjects related to current events, that cinema has yet to deal with”, he said.

Mungiu’s film premiered in Romania at the Transylvania International Film Festival (TIFF) in Cluj on Friday night. TIFF also hosts other premiere events, including “I really hate my job” by British producer Andrew Higgie, starring Romanian actress Oana Pellea.
