1986 The Lost Year
Many children were born with deformities. Irina is faced with a hideous dilemma: to have the abortion demanded by her mother-in-law and risk imprisonment, or to risk giving birth to a malformed baby who would be taken away by the state and allowed to die.
Ligia Ciornei’s gruelling drama, shot in extended takes, is not for the faint-hearted but carries a strong message and is dedicated to the victims of Chernobyl as well as to those of ‘communism and fear’.
