Kete Aronui film club presents Videograms of a Revolution, a 1992 documentary film compiled by renowned Directors Harun Farocki and Andrei Ujică. Videograms of a Revolution is made from over 125 hours of amateur footage including news reels and excerpts from the Bucharest TV studio it was broadcast from when it was overtaken by demonstrators during the Romanian Revolution in December 1989.

Demonstrators occupied the television station in Bucharest and broadcast continuously for 120 hours, thereby establishing the television studio as a new historical site. Between December 21, 1989 (the day of Ceaucescu’s last speech) and December 26, 1989 (the first televised summary of his trial), the cameras recorded events at the most important locations in Bucharest, almost without exception.

Kete Aronui film club is a free film programme held at Gus Fisher Gallery every second Thursday of the month, made possible with the help of Auckland Council. With special thanks to the Goethe-Institut for this screening.
