Uppercase Print

Tipografic Majuscul

1981, in a provincial Romanian town. Uppercase protest messages, written in blue chalk,come as a thunderbolt for Ceausescu’s totalitarian regime. The Secret Police launches exhaustive investigations, suspecting foreign agents. Eventually, the “terrorist” turned out to be Mugur Călinescu, a 16-year-old student guilty of the most abominable crime: free thinking. Radu Jude makes exemplary use of the archival material, merges the personal with the collective, and sheds light on the heartbreaking story of an unsung hero.
