Personal Quote:

I grew up in Communist Romania in the 1980s, and my first contact with American films was through the voice of Irina Margareta Nistor, who dubbed thousands of the black-market movies that were watched clandestinely by millions of Romanians at the time. I wanted to recapture the magic of those nights when we'd watch 4-5 films in a row and feel we'd opened a window to the West.[Jan.2015] See more »
