"I do not care if we go down in history as barbarians"

"Îmi este indiferent dacă în istorie vom intra ca barbari"

“I do not care if we go down in history as barbarians.” These words, spoken in the Council of Ministers of Romania in the summer of 1941, started the ethnic cleansing on the Eastern Front. The film attempts to comment on this statement. Notes: “military reenactment / Hannah Arendt / 1941, ‘the year that keeps returning,’ as seen from 2018 / quotations / firearms / archive footage / the Odessa massacre / burlesque / dialogues / Isaac Babel / fragmented narrative / ‘Wenn die Soldaten durch die Stadt marschieren’ / trivialization by comparison / barracks jokes / the present past, the past present.
