The Romanian documentary “Collective” was nominated for two major Oscar categories, including Best International Film and Best Documentary. The film received heavy praise upon its release. The story follows a Romanian newspaper’s investigation into a 2015 nightclub fire that killed dozens. It quickly pulls back a dark curtain of deeper corruption and mismanagement. KPCC’s John Horn talked with writer and director Alexander Nanau about the making of the documentary and what he thinks the overarching goal of it is. “Collective” is available to rent on various video on demand platforms.
