Between May 4 - 13, RCINY and the Facets Cinémathèque in Chicago presented the first Chicago retrospective on the cinema of Lucian Pintilie, following the extremely succesful retrospective at MoMA in early March 2012. The retrospective was saluted by the Chicago Press with great enthusiasm.

U.S. Reviews of The TALES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE at IFC Center, NYC
The final 15 years of the Ceauşescu regime were the worst in Romania 's recent history. Nonetheless, the propaganda machine of that time referred without fail to that period as “the golden age”. Humor is what kept Romanians alive, and TALES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE aims to re-capture that mood, portraying the survival of a nation having to face every day the twisted logic of a dictatorship. Comic, bizarre, surprising myths abounded, myths that drew on the often surreal events of everyday life under the communist regime. The film adapts for the screen the most popular urban myths of the period, portraying an era during which food was more important than money, freedom more important than love, and survival more important than principles.
