SHORT FORMS. Romania - People's House
Production Company: Radio Romania. Authors: Ilinca Stihi and Ioana Ieronim. Producer: Oana Cristea Grigorescu. Director: Ilinca Stihi. Sound engineer: Tom Brânduș.
Casa Poporului/People's House, radio script by Ilinca Stihi after Cifre în delir (When Big is not Beautiful), collage and lyrics by Ioana Ieronim, is a sound essay that proposes the re-evaluation of the significance of the People's House, one of the largest buildings in the world. The dizzying figures of the quantities of materials used are opposed by the number of human sacrifices and irretrievable urban destruction. The People's House reproduces through sound the atmosphere of the epoch, but it also restores the memory of the voices of those over whom the roller of history has passed.
