The Pitesti Experiment is an unfinished, historic film, a 100% independent production, the only Romanian film funded by crowdsourcing, with visibility in the national and international press of over 4,000 news, even before the release, according to the film director, Victoria Baltag. The film is due to be released in December this year.

The movie depicts the true story of the events which took place in Romania between 1949 and 1951 when, following the establishment of the Communist regime, all students were compelled to become members of the Party. Consequently, those who refused were imprisoned and 're-educated'. The re-education phenomenon, a concept borrowed from the Soviet pedagogue A.S. Makarenko, relied on the assumption that every person can become a 'new entity' through 're-education', which in this instance was achieved by means of both physical and mental torture.

We are raising funds to help Victoria Baltag - the Director, and her production team, to finish the film with the post-production costs, including music, color grading, sound editing (foley, dialogue cleaning, sound design, mastering, mixing), enveloping (text and credentials). Early this spring of 2020 Victoria will have a presentation film tour in Canada aiming to raise awareness on such a vital yet hidden part of Romania’s history.

The tour will include the cities of Toronto – ON (Feb. 28), Edmonton – AB (Feb. 29), Calgary – AB (March 1), Regina – SK (March 3), Winnipeg – MB (March 9), and will be achievable with the help of local cultural associations and/or Romanian diplomatic missions.

We are raising funds to help Victoria Baltag - the Director, and her production team, to finish the film with the post-production costs, including music, color grading, sound editing (foley, dialogue cleaning, sound design, mastering, mixing), enveloping (text and credentials). The needed amount remained for the above stages is 36,000 Euros which represents the 20% that they're missing to complete this true story film. All the money we'll collect through this campaign will go to Victoria Baltag production.


Early this spring of 2020 Victoria intend to have a presentation film tour in Canada aiming to raise awareness on such a vital yet hidden part of Romania’s history, tour that will include the cities of Calgary - AB, Edmonton - AB, Regina - SK, Winnipeg - MB, Montreal - QC, and will be achievable with the help of local cultural associations and/or Romanian diplomatic missions. In this sense, this fundraising campaign will run for a limited period, between January and February 2020.
