Zoom Q&A with director Marius Olteanu on Nov. 14 at 9:00pm PST! This talk will be LIVE on this page at that time, and will be automatically recorded and added to the end of the film playlist for later viewing. Please note: this film program and its accompanying livestream are available only to viewers in the United States.

An unusual love story, Olteanu’s debut feature film presents one day that leads to the breakup of a long-married couple. Reversing old clichés, the two protagonists—Dana and her husband, Artur—acknowledge the difficulty of letting one another go, despite the fact that they both admit that there is no love between them, but only camaraderie. This film is an honest appraisal of the complex ties that keep couples together.

Monsters received twenty nominations and several prizes for best feature film at international film festivals in Romania, Bulgaria, and India, the best screenplay at Berlin and Herceg Novi, and Judith State was awarded Best Actress in a Leading Role at Gopo Awards, Romania.
