Sieranevada by Romanian new wave pioneer Cristi Puiu, centers on a family coming together - and then coming apart. Somewhere in Bucharest, three days after the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris and 40 days after his father’s death, Larry, a neurologist at the top of his career, is attending a family meal in Bucharest to commemorate the patriarch. As the guests await the priest’s arrival, they argue about the events of 9/11. Larry tries to calm the debate, but opinions are so divided that not even the priest’s flying visit succeeds in reconciling the two camps. Just when things seem to be settling down, the arrival of an uninvited guest throws the commemoration into turmoil, which gradually deteriorates into an operatic settling of scores. Sieranevada premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and won Best Film and Best Director prizes at Chicago International Film Festival.
