Seminar description

Dana Bunescu is a Romanian film editor and sound editor. She is best known for editing Cristian Mungiu's films 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007, the film won three awards at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, including the Palme d'Or), The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceaușescu (dir. Andrei Ujică, 2010, screened at Cannes) as well as Calin Netzer’s Ana, Mon Amour (2017, Berlinale), for which she won the Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution. As a sound designer Dana worked on films such as Child’s Pose by Călin Peter Netzer, winner of Golden Bear for Best Film, Berlinale 2013, and Aferim! by Radu Jude (winner of Silver Bear at the Berlinale 2015).

In this seminar we will watch a selection of the films Dana Bunescu worked on as editor and/or as sound designer, ranging from well-known films to lesser known ones, and read texts placing these films into historic and cinematic context. Main goal of the seminar is to have close look at how screenwriting, camera, editing as well as sound design stand in relation to one another.

In English and German.

Please note: Dana Bunescu will give a workshop in the compact week, 12-16 June 2023, please see the compact seminar-text.
