Collective (Colectiv)

Director: Alexander Nanau

2019, Romania

Distributor: Magnolia Pictures

Director Alexander Nanau follows a crack team of investigators at the Romanian newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor as they try to uncover a vast health-care fraud that enriched moguls and politicians and led to the deaths of innocent citizens.

“In Collective, Nanau’s observational style of filmmaking reaches emotional depths. Tense and tightly edited, this exposé of heartless corruption will ring bells and outrage audiences long after its festival run, which began in Venice and Toronto, is over. It’s also a rousing cheer to sound investigative journalism, in this case the Bucharest paper Sports Gazette and its editor-in-chief Catalin Tolontan.” – Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
