Nominated for two Academy Awards®: Best International Feature Film and Best Documentary.

After an explosive fire claims the lives of 27 people at Bucharest nightclub Colectiv, officials reassure the public that surviving victims will receive care in facilities that are "better than in Germany." Weeks later, a rising causality count leads intrepid reporters at the Sports Gazette to investigate. Just as a crucial tip exposes local firm Hexi Pharma's culpability, the firm's owner dies under mysterious circumstances and the health minister quietly resigns amid the uproar — and this is only the first chapter in a thrilling, ever-twisting exposé. Closely tracking the efforts of the Gazette team as they methodically discover layer upon layer of fraud and criminal malfeasance, Alexander Nanau's COLLECTIVE is a fast-paced, real-time detective story about truth, accountability and the value of an independent press in partisan times. Winner, Best International Documentary Film, 2019 Zurich Film Festival; Winner, Best Documentary Feature, 2020 Hamptons International Film Festival; Winner, Special Jury Award, International Documentary Competition, 2020 Sofia International Film Festival. Official Selection, 2019 Venice, Toronto and IDFA film festivals; 2020 Sundance and AFI FEST film festivals.
