Elena Dirstaru


I am a documentary filmmaker, and my work focuses on human rights documentaries. My last two documentaries ('Monashay' and 'But They Can't Break Stones') focus on women's rights and have been screened internationally at film festivals and conferences. I am also doing a PhD in documentary filmmaking at the University of Essex, and I am currently working on a documentary on the representation of Communist crimes in the media, with a particular focus on the Romanian 1989 Revolution.
