Bucharest Rising

1 October 2016


Bucharest Rising is a timelapse film by Mihai Doarna of the bustling capital city of Romania. In the period between the two World Wars, the city's elegant architecture earned Bucharest the nickname of "Little Paris". The Second World War, Ceausescu and the 1977 earthquake put paid to that. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom and today, Bucharest is an interesting mix of neoclassical, communist era and modern architectures.
