Week of Integrity Kicks Off With Screening of Romanian Corruption Film

Today marks the start of the Week of Integrity 2020, organised by the International Chamber of Commerce in Albania, in collaboration with the EU.

One of the first events of the framework is the Anti-Corruption Film Festival which will be held online. Organised by the European Union Delegation to Albania and the Ministry of Justice, viewers will be able to watch a series of films produced by Albanian and EU Member State producers which aim to explain why the fight against corruption is of importance to us all.

Today, the Romanian Cultural Institute 2020 will broadcast a Romanian film called “De ce eu?” Or “Why Me?” directed by Tudor Giurgiu with actors Emilian Oprea, Sore Mihalache, Andi Vasluianu, Mihai Constantit, Andreea Vasile, Dan Condurache, and Olga Delia Mateescu.

The film is a drama and was inspired by the experience of Christian Panait who was a Romanian prosecutor in the Supreme Court of Justice. He committed suicide in 2002 after reportedly coming under pressure to prosecute another justice official.
