Liviu Ciulei
— The Eruption (1957)
Cinema
© copyright info
A forgotten masterpiece that mixes Soviet formalism with Hollywood noir.

In an arid oil-field, aspiring Anca arrives to meet the exodus of townspeople abandoning the remaining workers in their last attempt to drill for the oil that is to revitalize the region. She’s been assigned from the city to join the Stakhanovite team headed by the statuesque lead-engineer Barbu, but before long, her impassioned drive foments tensions that slowly bubble up to the surface, unwittingly putting at risk the entire operation.

Blending Soviet formalism with 1950s Hollywood noir, this forgotten masterpiece marks Liviu Ciulei’s cinematic debut.

Preceded by a conversation with Thomas Ciulei (director and son of Liviu Ciulei).

The Eruption is part of Propaganda & Subversion.
