Life in Romania during the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu was at once tragic and absurd as the nation's head of state erected a cult of personality that literally turned his country into a stage show. Tapping Ceausescu's video archives and drawing on interviews with many of the talented people who made Ceausescu's political theater come to life, this program examines the creation and application of propaganda within the context of Romanian political history during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. Ceausescu scripted an epic with himself as the star, but others wrote the inevitable denouement that brought down the curtain on him and his wife, Elena, a "scientist of world renown.
