Director Andrei Ujica poured over 1,000 hours of footage, including state propaganda, newsreels and home movies, to complete a film about the former Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. The resulting "avant-documentary" presents the story of Ceausescu's rise and fall as well as the history of the media manipulation that made it possible.
