Alexander Nanau’s Collective Nightmare for Our Time

By MedayaOcher Subscribe on Podcasts | Spotify | SoundCloud |
Co-hosts Kate and Eric speak with filmmaker Alexander Nanau about his stunning new documentary Collective about corruption in the Romanian Hospital system, government, and the broader society.  Alexander discusses the terrifying story at the heart of the film, the state of politics in his home country, and how he produced the film.  If a tale like Collective might have seemed from a far off land, or a bygone Eastern Bloc era; the Trumpian mismanagement of the ongoing pandemic – with shortages of PPE’s and the unnecessary deaths of thousands of essential workers – delivers the film’s unbearable tragedy right to our doorstep.
Also, Bryan Washington, author of Memorial, returns to recommend Rachel Khong’s novel Goodbye Vitamin
The post Alexander Nanau’s Collective Nightmare for Our Time appeared first on Los Angeles Review of Books.
