Arest written and directed by Andrei Cohn will be shown at Festival Internacional de Cine Documental de Buenos Aires, in Fictions of the real programme.
In August 1983, architect Dinu Neagu together with his wife and two children, a boy and a girl, are on a beach of nudists near an industrial area.
Two security guards descend from a car and take him to Bucharest for a statement about which they do not give much details about.
The film continues in the militia's arrest, where architect Neagu is locked in the same room as Vali, a common law convict, used as a torturer by security in exchange for favours.
Things are getting more and more absurd from one day to the next.
