Corneliu Porumboiu is a contemporary Romanian filmmaker, included in what critics have dubbed the Romanian New Wave. His debut feature, 12:08 East of Bucharest, won the Camera d’Or Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and was followed by Police, Adjective, which won the festival’s Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section.
Porumboiu’s trademark humour and deconstruction of the real continue in his latest film, When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism, which charts the making of a film through the romantic/analytic relationship between the director and lead actress.
The film had its North American premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and we were completely thrilled to discuss the film at length with Corneliu at our studio space in OCAD U’s Graduate Gallery.
