A special retrospective honouring the filmmaker's work as well as Q&A sessions and a masterclass will be part of the official festival programme. One World Romania will take place in Bucharest from 16 to 25 March.

The three other films to be screened at the festival are Goodbye, CP (1972), which focuses on shedding light on the prejudices of people who have cerebral palsy in Japan. Extreme Private Eros Love Song 1974 (1974) is a film about the director's relationship with his ex-wife, who is a radical feminist. The third film, The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches On (1987), follows a World War 2 veteran, aged 62, who attempts to expose needless executions of two Japanese soldiers during the war.
