"Absolutely brilliant ." —Rolling Stone

"Every now and then a documentary doesn't just open your eyes but tears you apart. An explosive observational documentary about unfathomable corruption. This is truly a documentary for our times." —Variety

After an explosive fire claims the lives of a 27 people at Bucharest nightclub, Colectiv, officials reassure the public that surviving victims will receive care in facilities that are "better than in Germany." Weeks later, a rising casualty count leads intrepid reporters at the Sports Gazette to investigate. Just as a crucial tip exposes Hexi Pharma, a local firm's culpability, the firm's owner dies under mysterious circumstances and the health minister quietly resigns amid the uproar - but this is only the first chapter in a thrilling, ever-twisting expose.

Closely tracking the efforts of the Gazette's team as they methodically discover layer upon layer of fraud and criminal malfeasance, Alexander Nanau's Collective is a fast-paced, real-time detective story about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times.
