Abstract:

History takes place before our eyes as the Romanian government of Nicolai Ceaucescu topples. In ten tense days during December 1989, a popular rebellion overthrew the government, executed the ruler, and occupied the television network. Factions of the rebellion broadcast these events continuously for 120 hours. In Videograms of a Revolution, controversial German director Harun Farocki teams up with Andrej Ujica to condense and shape over 125 hours of amateur and professional video into a document that concisely chronicles the fall of Ceaucescu. The result is a unique documentary in which media spectacle is turned into history and then history turned into drama.
