Abstract:

In December 1989, a popular rebellion in Romania overthrew the government and executed dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu and his wife Elena. After word of demonstrations in the city of Timișoara reached Bucharest-via the VOA and Radio Free Europe, demonstrators in Bucharest determined that television and video would play an important part in the success of the developing revolution, and occupied the studios of Televisiunea Romănâ, broadcasting continuously for 120 hours. Using footage taken by amateur videographers, network camera operators, and the broadcasts demonstrators aired as the revolution unfolded, the filmmakers present a chronology of those events as captured, aired, and seen by the participants themselves.
