Gold Coast Arts Presents Film Screening of Romanian Neo-Noir Film THE WHISTLERS
Gold Coast Arts Cinema Series presents the screening of the Romanian film, "The Whistlers" on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. at the Great Neck Cinemas at the Squire, 115 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck, NY 11021.
From internationally acclaimed Romanian Director Corneliu Porumboiu, "The Whistlers" is a clever, swift, occasionally violent, and elegant neo-noir film, that stars Vlad Ivanov, Catrinel Marlon, and Rodica Lazar.
The film tells the story of Cristi (Ivanov), a police inspector who plays both sides of the law, and is intent on freeing a corrupt businessman imprisoned in Romania. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda (Marlon) on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of corruption, treachery and deception, including travel to the Canary Islands to learn a difficult ancient whistling language.
A highlight at the 2019 New York Film Festival, "The Whistlers," was Romania's official submission for International Feature Film at the 2020 Academy Awards.
