"Features performance segments from "Not about Romanian Cinema : POONARC", a chapter from Chuma's on-going performance work "A Page Out of Order" which she started in 2001. Inspired by "A Page of Madness", a silent Japanese movie from 1926 by Teinosuke Kinugasa, Chuma sees a connection between the silent cinema and today's performance art. Movement, beautiful and strange images, sounds and verbal fragments are the trademarks of her performance work."--Based on summary from publisher's website
