How do you fix a system that’s been broken for decades? See the jaw-dropping new film that has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best International Film, and for Best Documentary.
Investigative journalists uncover massive fraud in the Romanian health care system revealing the price of corruption and ultimately, the price of truth.
"When the press bows down to the authorities, the authorities will mistreat its citizens. This always happens, worldwide, and it has happened to us." - Cătălin Tolontan, Collectiv.
In 2015, a fire at Bucharest’s Colectiv club leaves 27 dead and 180 injured. Soon, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from wounds that were not life-threatening. Then a doctor blows the whistle to a team of investigative journalists. One revelation leads to another as the journalists start to uncover vast health care fraud. When a new health minister is appointed, he offers unprecedented access to his efforts to reform the corrupt system but also to the obstacles he faces.
Winner of over 25 awards, and selected as Romania’s Academy Awards entry for Best International Film, COLLECTIVE follows journalists, whistle-blowers, burn victims, and government officials in its uncompromising look at the impact of investigative journalism at its best.
