Fisher To Host Film Premiere of Decoding Dacia
Doors will open at 5:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
RSVP is requested.
The premiere will take place in Fisher College's Alumni Hall, located at 116 Beacon Street, Boston, MA.
Launched by documentary filmmaker and Fisher graduate Nicholas Dimancescu '07, it is the third in a series entitled "Romania at War." Dimancescu had previously directed two prior feature films: Hill 789 on WW-I, and Knights of the Sky on WW-II. Decoding Dacia focuses on a dramatic period in Romania's history 2000 years when it came into conflict with the Roman Empire under Emperor Trajan.
Tragically, during the filming in May 2011, Nicholas died in an accidental fall while from atop a cliff during a lighting storm. Inspired by his special passion for the subject, his film company colleagues and family committed to complete his work.
All video and aerials of the Carpathian Mountains and ground shots are new; for the first time 3D animations were produced to recreate historic sites in three Romanian locations; commissioned illustrations depict moments of battle between Dacians and Romans.
There will be a Q&A session directly following the screening with the filmmakers. Light refreshments will be provided.
