ROB TV. Two Guys Create Pseudo-Television To Satirize Romanian Church

The New Music Video from Eyedrops Is So Zen It Sets You on Fire

Bucharest-based rock band Eyedrops just released their new music video – PREZENT – which is brilliant, zen and warming. Literally. The main character burns in his car.

“Kusturician” Documentary about Romanian “Heigh-Ho!” Rural Society Will Be Released Next Week

Heirupist is a Romanian artificial word which describes the character of a person who takes part in a team and does nothing but pretending to work with the others.

‘Double-Blind No. 1’. Short Incursion Into The Seductive Human Subconscious

Hypnotic Dancer Breaks into Billion Pixels in the New Video from Thy Veils

Thy Veils is an artistic group based in Timisoara (Romania). Did you see what I did? I said “artistic”, because is quite  difficult to categorize the group.
