Unanimously considered an instant classic from the very beginning, the saga of the Morometes has enjoyed a wide international circulation thanks to its numerous translations. To mark the jubilee, the Romanian Cultural Institute is proud to bring some of its memorable scenes to the digital age as an invitation to discover the whole version of the 1957 English translation, hosted in the vaults of the British Library. The event will be accompanied by a conversation on Marin Preda’s legacy in Romania and Britain, featuring writer and academic Caius Dobrescu and renowned thespian Jack Klaff.
This event is part of ‘The Morometes 60: The Jubilee of a Masterpiece’, a celebratory programme that revisits the interplaying worlds of Marin Preda and his memorable characters through film, theatre, photography, and talks.
