Campanie de Fundraising / AR-NE Goes Digital Fundraising

Dear all,

The Association of Romanians in New England (AR-NE) invites you all to make a contribution for our goal in digitizing the content of our non-profit organization. With your support, AR-NE will receive a $2,500.00 grant from Mass Cultural Council to digitize its future events.

Mass Cultural Council funds reach every community in the Commonwealth. Its mission is to promote excellence, education, access and diversity in the arts, humanities, and sciences, to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the vitality of our communities and economy.

This grant from Mass Cultural Council (https://massculturalcouncil.org/) signifies that AR-NE will provide notable public value through its programs, services, and events such as book launchings, theatrical performances, local business fairs, film presentations, concerts, or Romanian traditional folk dances, music, and food with local artists or guests from Romania. AR-NE is leading the way in the New England area by promoting Romanian cultural events since 2010. Please check our past and current activities at www.ar-ne.org, join our Facebook Page Asociatia Romanilor din New England and follow us on Instagram or YouTube.

By sharing these events with you, we will continue to promote the Romanian cultural heritage directly to hundreds of people in the area or on the Internet to a wider audience. 

Thank you for being a special part of this fundraising event and for your commitment to the Romanian community.

Every dollar raised will help us capture and preserve our events digitally.

85e9a2fa-a239-4adf-a052-803381ebd114

Cartea cuprinde rapoartele agentilor de securitate, scrise timp de 129 de zile in 1948, 1949, si 1950, pe parcursul urmaririi tatalui autoarei, sociologul Anton Golopentia, ca si transcierile convorbirilor telefonice din acea perioada din casa lor. Mai cuprinde si declaratiile lui Anton Golopentia din timpul anchetelor, si de asemenea file de memorii. Cartea arunca o privire asupra istoriei Romaniei dupa cel de al 2-lea razboi mondial, in special asupra inceputului comunismului si represiunilor politice din Romania. In luna februarie a acestui an, cartea a ajuns deja pe rafturile marilor universitati americane, fiind apreciata ca un material de referinta de studenti, profesori, si cercetatori.

This book contains all the reports written during 129 days in 1948, 1949, and 1950 by the secret police agents of the Securitate charged with the surveillance of the author’s father, sociologist Anton Golopentia, as well as all the transcriptions of the phone conversations in their house at that time. It also brings together some of Golopentia’s declarations later on, while investigated as a detained witness, and personal memories. The book provides insights into post-WWII Eastern European history, particularly the beginning of the communist regime and political repression in Romania, and will be useful to researchers (historians, psychologists, anthropologists, and literary specialists), as well as professors and students in universities and schools.

Capra cu trei iezi / The Goat and Her Three Kids

Capra

February 22nd at 4 pm

Auburndale Community Library: 375 Auburn St., Newton, MA 

Desprinsa de lume, o mama singura cu trei copii se vede nevoita sa isi apere cu orice pret ce a mai ramas din familia ei de un ucigas cu sange rece. Bazata pe binecunoscuta poveste romaneasca „Capra cu trei iezi” a lui Ion Creanga, acesc scurt metraj isi propune sa dezvaluie adevarata natura a celebrei povesti de adormit copiii, si sa expuna publicului o alta perspectiva, una ce arata de fapt ce inseamna o tragedie, dincolo de cantece vesele si caractere simpatice. Filmul nu este recomandat copiilor sun 12 ani.
In 2019 scurt metrajul „Capra cu trei iezi” avandu-i in rolurile principale pe Maia Morgenstern and Marius Bodochi, regizat de Victor Canache produs de Luana Georgiţă a avut premiera la Festivalul International de Film Transilvania.
Victor Canache si Luana Georgiţă se afla in Statele Unite sa promoveze varianta de scurt metraj a filmului si sa adune cat mai multe resurse pentru a incepe pregatirile pentru varianta de lung metraj a filmului.
Asociatia Romanilor in New England le sprijina efortul si visul de a continua acest proiect. Speram ca ne veti fi alaturi la prezentarea scurt metrajului si la sesiune de intrebari si raspunsuri.
Orice donatie e binevenita si ii va ajuta pe producatori in efortul lor de aduce la lumina varianta de lung metraj a acestei povesti cu care multi dintre noi am crescut.

Secluded from the world, a single mother of three has to defend what’s left of her family, at all cost, from a cold blooded killer. Based on one of the best known Romanian fairy tales (The Goat and Her Three Kids by Ion Creanga), this short film aims to unveil the true nature of the famed bed time story and to treat the audience to a different perspective, one that offers a glimpse at what the tragedy actually looks like beyond the happy songs and colorful characters. The movie is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
In 2019 the short film The Goat and Her Three Kids starring Maia Morgenstern and Marius Bodochi,  directed by Victor Canache and produced by Luana Georgiţă premieres at Transilvania International Film Festival.
Victor Canache and Luana Georgiţă are in the United States to present the short version of the movie and to gather as many resources as possible to start the preparation of the long version.
The Association of Romanians in New England is supporting their efforts and their dream of continuing this project and we hope you can join us for the screening and the Q&A session.
Donations are welcome and will support their tour in the United States and their efforts to fulfill the dream of making the long version of a story that many of us grew up with.

 Luati copiii si lasati-i sa vina la ARNE!

Clara si timpul liber:

Ca în fiecare zi, Clara funcționara își vede cu conștiinciozitate de lucru, programând activitățile extra-școlare ale copiilor. Doar că azi, ca în nici o alta zi, în  Biroul Oficial de Ocupare a Timpului Oficial Liber totul pare sa meargă pe dos la propriu și la figurat. Înnebunită de dosare cu tabele și orare, dar mai ales de Vocea care nu îi îngăduie nici o pauză, Clara primește un telefon care îi amintește de ceva aproape uitat: faptul că și ea a fost odată copil. Sătulă de atâtea planificări, mintea începe sa îi umble brambura și scapă frâiele în care era atât de bine ținută imaginația. Va reuși oare Clara să găsească secretul eliberării timpului liber?

Un spectacol fără prea multe vorbe, cu umor și un strop de poezie despre frumusețea lucrurilor născute din întâmplare, neplanificate. De văzut împreună cu părinții.
