The eighth edition of the Transilvania International Film Festival will open May 29 with the local premiere of Tales From The Golden Age, an omnibus film written and produced by Cristian Mungiu. Wild Bunch is handling international sales on the film, which is tipped for Cannes, where Mungiu won the Palme d’Or just two years ago for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.Tales From The Golden Age is a collection of short films based on urban legends from the late communist era in Romania. Mungiu directs two the stories himself, with others directed by Ioana Uricaru, Hanno Hofer, Razvan Marculescu and Constantin Popescu. Mungiu says he wanted to offer Romanian and foreign audiences a comedy after the bleak abortion drama4 Months. ‘Tales from the Golden Age … brings together five members of the same generation, who enjoyed restoring, re-using and re-conditioning their own memories from the times of their sleepless nights at parties, endless food cues and VCR get-togethers,’ Mungiu said in press release issued by the festival.Other titles screening at this year’s festival include: last year’s Cannes title Gomorrah, Berlin title Everyone Else, Karlovy Vary winner Terribly Happy, andFrench hitI’ve Loved You So Long.The festival will run May 29-June 7 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
