— Fox Hunting (1980)

Mircea Daneliuc’s most fragile, poetic film waiting to be rediscovered.

The Communist collectivization of the Romanian peasantry is advancing throughout the country, spreading fast and pillaging lands. Foreshadowing the plight that’s already befallen his village, the resolutely a-political and stubborn family man, Năiţă Lucian, together with his friend Pătru, defies the local authorities by refusing to hand over his hunting weapon – and implicitly, his way of life. 

Fox Hunting is one of the most indicting portrayals of the Communist collectivization, drawing upon Călin Ghibu’s earthy cinematography to depict village life in all its muddy winters and springtime bloom. Daneliuc balances out the Courbet-like realism with a non-linear narrative structure of sublime sensibility towards its continuum of rural existence. Selected at the Berlin Film Festival in 1980, Fox Hunting is Mircea Daneliuc’s most fragile, poetic film waiting to be rediscovered.

Fox Hunting is part of Negotiating History @ Cinéma Galeries.
