Synopsis

In the aftermath of a tragic fire in a Romanian music club, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from wounds that were not life threatening. A team of investigative journalists move into action to uncover massive corruption in the health system and other state institutions. Following journalists, whistle-blowers, and government officials, Colectiv is an immersive and uncompromising look into the price of corruption and the price of truth.

Director’s Statement

Living between cultures and countries, I never had the feeling of belonging anywhere. Witnessing thousands united in protest after the devastating Colectiv Club fire in Romania, the country I was born in, awakened in me a need to understand people dedicated to the greater good.
Only by moulding into the lives of my protagonists, could I begin to grasp their courage and dedication in the search for truth, and their resilience in overcoming the deepest pain. In the process, I also learned how people and systems manipulate from power positions, pervert the truth and the law, and step over human dignity and fundamental rights. For me this film is about not taking democracies and social justice for granted.
