In 2007, Romanian director Cristi Mungiu’s film, ‘4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days’ became an international smash. Set in Ceauşescu-era Romania in the 1980s, the film exposed the regime’s hypocrisy for espousing family values while at the same time pushing vulnerable, pregnant women into highly risky backstreet abortions. It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes for best film.
