I DON’T CARE IF WE GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS BARBARIANS

Romania/Czech Republic/France/Bulgaria/Germany, 2018, 139’

‘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 contemplate on this statement.
