Behold The Fury Of CHUCK NORRIS VS COMMUNISM!
An independent documentary now in pre-production, Chuck Norris vs Communism tells the story of Irina Margareta Nistor, a woman who dubbed over five thousand films smuggled illegally into Romania in the 1980's when the country was still under the hand of Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.
The film is currently raising money on Indie GoGo and it's been a good long while since I saw a project more worthy of support than this one. Check their pitch below and follow the links to support the film.
In the 1980's, Romania's communist regime reached its most drastic stage. Ceausescu became obsessed with repaying Western loans and with building himself a palace of unprecedented proportions. TV was reduced to two hours of broadcast, focused mostly on praising Ceausescu and the regime's achievements.
It was then that Irina Margareta Nistor dubbed over 5,000 foreign films that entered the country illegally and were distributed on the black market. Her husky and high-pitched voice became the symbol of freedom. Chuck Norris vs. Communism follows the story of the tapes, the lives that were touched by them and the people who made it possible for Romanians to escape their harsh reality through the spectacular world of film.
