The Romanian inspirational movie,, We get off at the next stop’’ is about a few people who got stuck in a rail-car during a subway trip. For more than one hour the characters, who are people with different backgrounds and have different life styles and convictions, begin to know one another and see themselves, as they are and not as they want to think they are, behind the appearances. It’s the moment of truth, revealing their lives as they are and not as they want to see themselves. The action takes place a day after the tragedy from the Club ,, Collective’’ where many young people were burned alive, a tragedy which has affected the whole Romanian nation and not only, by bringing sorrow and tears. The movie is produced in 2018 by the director Tedy Necula. The director shows through the movie that after tragedies, we have survived as nation with Intelligence, Humor, Communication, Excellence and Friendship. It’s a movie about RESISTANCE, no matter what!
A very successful and intensive dialogue with young people from a multi ethnic community

The Theater Laboratory was based on local European and worldly contemporary history and consisted in an experimental and interactive learning based on roles playing, drawing and carving that gave the participants the possibility to express their opinions on how they see nowadays history and the challenges of our contemporary society struggling with ostracism, discrimination, control and abuse.
The participants were students from different cultures and geopolitical areas. Thus they had the opportunity to share different visions and experiences both from Europe and Middle East and Asia.
The conclusion of the laboratory is that we have to resist together and struggle against ostracism of every kind.
The visit to Pitesti Prison, that is a memorial museum inside the former Pitesti penitentiary at this moment and which was active between 1941-1977, made us realize the most inhuman ways in which the political prisoners, who were against the communist doctrine, were tortured in order to give up their own convictions so that to follow the atheist communist ideology thus becoming reeducated.
The visit to Piteşti Prison was followed by a visit to Mateiaş Mausoleum, a monument dedicated to the resistance of the Romanian soldiers between 1916-1918 in the War of National Integration where the guide presented the students beside images and maps, an acoustic simulation of the war which was pretty amazing.
The pictures can show more than words
