Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes

More about the film:
In Europe in the fall of 1989, history took place before our very eyes. Videograms of a Revolution (1992) shows the Rumanian revolution of December 1989 in Bucharest in a new media-based form of historiography. Demonstrators occupied the television station (in Bucharest) and broadcast continuously for 120 hours, thereby establishing the television studio as a new historical site. Between December 21, 1989 (the day of Ceausescu's last speech) and December 26, 1989 (the first televised summary of his trial), the cameras recorded events at the most important locations in Bucharest, almost without exception.
