In 1980s Romania, Western movies smashed through the Iron Curtain opening a window into the free world for those who dared to look. This fascinating and inspiring documentary tells the story of a black-market VHS racketeer and a courageous female translator who brought the magic of film to the people and helped to spark a revolution.

‘I grew up in Communist Romania in the 1980s, and my first contact with American films was through the voice of Irina Nistor, who dubbed thousands of the black-market movies that were watched clandestinely by millions of Romanians at the time. I wanted to recapture the magic of those nights when we’d watch 4-5 films in a row and feel we’d opened a window to the West.’ - Ilinca Calugareanu, Director
