The evening will have two parts to it. The first part will be at the Duke’s at Komedia, where we will screen Romanian movie "I am an old communist hag" by Stere Gulea . The screening will be followed by a Q&A with actress Ana Ularu.
The second part will be at Komedia in the club/bar area with DJ Nico de Transilvania, your hostess for the night, who will be playing a set influenced by her travels around the world as a DJ. Nico is keeping true to her balkan roots, but combining these with the global/electronic sounds of the world.
