Screened at the Venice Film Festival, TIFF and Sundance, Collective has captivated audiences with its real-life tale of systemic corruption and the journalists who expose it.

On October 30, 2015, a fire at the Bucharest club Colectiv killed 27 people and injured 180, leading to public protests that brought down the Romanian government. When an additional 37 people died in the hospital from infection, journalist Cătălin Tolontan and the reporters at Romania’s Sports Gazette newspaper exposed the unchecked corruption that sacrificed countless lives for the greed of a few.

At the same time, others fought hard against the system of oppression strangling the nation, including several whistleblowers, a young bureaucrat who tried to reform the system despite entrenched opposition, and a survivor from the Colectiv fire who expressed her pain through art. With the feel of a real-life political thriller, Collective takes us inside the world of reporters and other brave Romanian citizens who confronted the failure of the state with the only weapon they had: the truth.

Australian Premiere, presented as part of Antenna Selects, a year-round program of physical screenings and events, featuring some of the best local and international documentaries.
