Collective: Alexaner Nanau’s Documentary of Romanian Corruption

Collective was one of the highlights of the 2019 Venice Film Fest

Alexaner Nanau’s documentary Collective is an intriguing exposé of corruption brought about by a deadly nightclub fire, centering on a seemingly trivial product, a disinfectant. (Yes, disinfectant).

The feature shows the resilience and power of a determined team of an independent news media to discredit the fake (mis)information offered by corrupt politicians.

A team of reporters for a sports journal refuse to abandon the story, holding accountable those who profited from the sale of tainted antibacterial products, diluted first by shady vendors, and then by the many hospitals that use them.

Nanau may be the first to provide an in-depth look at the Romanian medical industry, and the way that its norms and practices endanger the lives of innocent ordinary citizens.
