About the project
LOCKLINEA moving and activating documentary about two Romanian activists with the same goal, but completely different methods.

Introduction

Cristian-Mihai and Florin, two wildly different activists with the same goal: changing corrupt Romania. As seen through their eyes, #Rezist shows their struggle and coping.

Through confronting sit-down interviews and 'fly on the wall' situations you'll experience how they feel about their decisions, experiences and their future. How do they keep going? What drives them to go through all enormous fines, media framing and setbacks?

Their ways may be different, but their ideas the same: change. Their differences, yet similarities make it so compelling.

 

Why this film, why now?

If progress has to be made, voices have to be heard. The last few years very important protests have taken place to tackle corrupt governments, fueling the activist fire, but the situation hasn't gotten any better. A lot of people believe it has only gotten more corrupt.

For the youth it isn't getting any better either. Romania has, behind Poland, the most amount of citizens living outside of the home country. There's a reason for this: it's not working properly right now. 

We are making this film to give them a voice. A bigger audience. But without your help we won't be able to finish the film. And we believe this film should be made. Activism is not only something that's going on in Romania, but all over the planet.

Standing up for yourself is important. That's what Cristian-Mihai and Florin are doing. But not only for themselves. For an entire generation. 

 

Why we need you

Making a film costs a lot of time and money, and in order to be able to make this film the best it can we need your help. Important things like proper audio-mixing, color correction (gotta get that sweet cinematic look) and editing are all expensive expenses we have to make. 

No matter the amount, every donation will help us tremendously. It'll help us get the film out in the world and hopefully to filmfestivals. It will be screened in Utrecht in January 2020, and we hope to get it screened in Romania and many more countries.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
