Trailer for ‘Collective’, Romania’s official entry for Best International Feature

The film comes to screens following showings at Toronto, Sundance and Venice.

Here’s a look at an upcoming documentary feature titled Collective. The film, which has premiered at international film festivals like Toronto, Sundance and Venice, starts its roll-out into cinemas and is Romania’s official entry for Best International Feature at next year’s Oscars.

In 2015, a fire at Bucharest’s Colectiv club leaves 27 dead and 180 injured. Soon, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from wounds that were not life-threatening. Then a doctor blows the whistle to a team of investigative journalists. One revelation leads to another as the journalists start to uncover vast health care fraud. When a new health minister is appointed, he offers unprecedented access to his efforts to reform the corrupt system but also to the obstacles he faces.

Directed by Alexander Nanau (TOTO AND HIS SISTERS), COLLECTIVE follows a heroic team of journalists as they uncover shocking, widespread corruption. After a deadly nightclub fire, the mysterious death of the owner of a powerful pharmaceutical firm, and the quiet resignation of a health minister—seemingly unrelated events, all within weeks of each other—the team of intrepid reporters exposes a much larger, much more explosive political scandal. COLLECTIVE is a fast-paced, real-time detective story about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times.

Watch the trailer for the film below. Collective debuts in cinemas and on demand in the US from 20th November through Magnolia Pictures, and will land in further territories after that.
