Chuck Norris vs Communism soll eine Doku über das kommunistische Regime im Rumänien der 80er und die dort illegal vertriebenen Filme auf VHS-Tapes werden. Der Film sucht grade finanzielle Unterstützung per Crowdfunding auf Indiegogo.
In the 1980’s, Romania’s communist regime reached its most drastic stage. Ceausescu became obsessed with repaying Western loans and with building himself a palace of unprecedented proportions. TV was reduced to two hours of broadcast, focused mostly on praising Ceausescu and the regime’s achievements.
It was then that Irina Margareta Nistor dubbed over 5,000 foreign films that entered the country illegally and were distributed on the black market. Her husky and high-pitched voice became the symbol of freedom. ‘Chuck Norris vs. Communism’ follows the story of the tapes, the lives that were touched by them and the people who made it possible for Romanians to escape their harsh reality through the spectacular world of film.
