10:00–18:00 Romanian comics 2019

The exhibition consists of works of illustrators and animators known in Romania and abroad. The Polish audience can become familiar with a wide range of styles and themes and ways to approach them. A unitary exhibition despite the diversity of styles, from which permeates the joy the authors gain from the art of comics.

Artists: Xenia Pamfil, Ileana Surducan, Maria Surducan, Anna Júlia Benczédi, Adrian Barbu, Gabriel Rusu


Organizer: Romania – the Fair’s Guest of Honour
Place: Autograph area for the comics artists (21/H, level 0)
10:00–18:00 "Follow the cat" – an exhibition of illustration for children books

The exhibition "Follow the cat" is a collection of 25 illustrations by Romanian cartoonists associated in the Romanian Illustrators Club.

Artists:  Zelmira Szabo, Cristiana Radu, Adela Calistru, Alina Marinescu, Anca Smarandache, Andra Badea, Cristinas Crișu, Raluca Burcă, Corina Drăgan, Delia Zahareanu, Emanuela Balint, Gabriela Fabian, Georgiana Chițac, Irina Dobrescu, Iulia Ignat, Margareta Udrescu, Gabriela Soare, Mihaela Paraschivu, Raluca Anghel, Stela Lie, Oana Ispir, Bogdan Topîrceanu.

Since its beginning in 2005, the Club's vocation has been to make the impossible possible, clothing the world in shapes and colors according to the artists’ own imagination.

In the beginning there were ten: a few students, a few graduates and their lecturer in graphic art from the State University of Art in Bucharest, Stela Lie. They worked more during the workshops than during classes, as book illustration is not a class subject in any of the Romanian universities. Today there are fifty of them.

10:00–18:00 Exhibition "Transylvania through the eyes of Polish photographers"

The exhibition Transylvania through the eyes of Polish photographers is the work of eight photographers from Toruń, Gdańsk, Warsaw, Radomsko and Głogów who, in June 2018, set off armed with cameras from their base in Transylvanian Saschiz to Romanian villages, towns and cities, from Mediasz to Bran. It shows the richness in architectural details, original, and in many cases, exotic, of different Transylvanian areas.

14:00–15:30 Screening of the movie "Unseen Romania" (documentary, 90 min.)

The film takes the viewer on a journey that begins on the forested slopes of the Carpathians – where bears, wolves and lynx live in the wilderness and ends to the windswept waters of the Danube Delta – with water snakes in the depths and pelicans that are rising in the sky. A fabulous nature flourishes in the heart of Europe: mountains stretching along the horizon, ancient forests and endlessly flowing meadows that are home to various species of animals and plants typical of the Old Continent. It is a land of beauty and unrestrained nature, whose fate depends on the seasons. Creatures that we know from legends and fairy tales live here in the wild and fight for survival. And "Unseen Romania" reveals all these unbelievable stories to us.

15:00–16:00 Movie screening: the noir-policier shorts trilogy Bad Penny, Kowalski and Ramona, directed by Andrei Crețulescu (56 min.)

Andrei Creţulescu’s trilogy (Bad Penny, Kowalski and Ramon) combines humor, violence and fantasy in a cinema that is stylized, postmodern and unusual from a formal point of view. Shorts shot with the same crew and cast: trio Andi Vasluianu, Şerban Pavlu, Dorian Boguţă and Rodica Lazăr and Ana Ularu, one of the most talented actors of the young generation.

Bad Penny: One night, just before the holidays, in an empty park, two small-time thugs hold up a strange looking man. Kowalski: Three men go into a pub. The first man has too many questions, the second man has the perfect plan and the third man has no chance. Ramona: One girl. One car. One night. No coincidence. Awarded by the International Critics' Week in Cannes (2015) and at the Chicago Shorts festival.

Dialogue is the strong side of Creţulescu's work. A lively and unique noir & pulp cinema with dialogues that are fleshy and intelligent. The strong words are not only characteristic for the characters, they are a mark of their brutality, ruthlessness, physical violence and selfishness. A world in which the curse is above all a confirmation of self-esteem.

16:00–18:00 "We cannot escape our past" – meeting with the historian Adrian Cioroianu

Meeting about the book with the same title (Amaltea 2019). Meeting led by dr hab. Błażej Brzostek. An event dedicated to the students and lecturers of the University of Warsaw.

Adrian Cioroianu, currently Ambassador of Romania to UNESCO in Paris, is one of the most eminent Romanian historians and politicians: former dean of the Faculty of History at the University of Bucharest, senator, member of the European Parliament, and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania between 2007-2008.

The book is a brief tale about the most important events, problems and figures of Romanian history (from the second world war to the overthrow of communism in 1989), allowing the readers to understand Romania's history. For a Polish reader who usually does not know much about the history of his pre-war neighbor, this story will be a fascinating discovery.

14:00–15:30 "The book of the cat' – meeting with the writer Cristian Teodorescu

We invite you to a meeting with the award-winning Romanian writer Cristian Teodorescu and the translator Radosław Janowska-Lascar. The discussions will be led by Marcin Wilk

Cristian Teodorescu, the author of Medgidia (Amaltea 2016, translated by Radosława Janowska-Lascar), is famous for his colorful way of telling stories. He constructs his heroes with warmth and tenderness, and his books are seasoned with a large dose of humor and a pinch of irony.

The discussions will focus on this year's Polish launching of "The book of the cat" (Amaltea 2019, translated by Radosława Janowska-Lascar). The narrator of the novel is a one-eyed cat, taken in by the writer. The cat's look at the world, though limited as a result of an accident, becomes a pretext to consider family, friendship and the modern world relationships. A book not only for lovers of meowing pets!

The author's previous book, Medgidia qualified for the finals of the ANGELUS Central European Literary Award in 2016.
