A new type of discourse about documentary filmmaking sprang up, initially from two filmmakers, Alexandru Solomon and Florin Iepan, who, in the early 2000s, had been attached to a European training initiative (Discovery...展开Masterschool), which strove to facilitate access to the international market for documentary professionals experienced in smaller national markets. Their films, The Great Communist Bank Robbery ( Marele jaf communist ; dir. Solomon, 2004) and Children of the Decree (Decreteii; dir. Iepan, 2004) were commissioned by major international producers and broadcasters (BBC4, Arte, and Finnish Yle TV for Solomon; Westend, ARTE, WDR-TV Ontario, and Romanian television for Iepan) while they were at the Discovery Masterschool, and were developed in co-production with Romania's National Film Center. Both films engaged with exceptional episodes from Romania's communist past and addressed the tensions between social and individual memory.
