TRAILER: Chuck Norris vs Communism

I can't say I don't enjoy the odd Chuck Norris pot shot a few dozen times a day, but sadly this title is completely unrelated to those and spectacularly misleading. So much that MANY people might completely overlook this documentary which tells of an amazing story of hope and heroism of the non-buttkicking kind. 

The documentary is actually a project currently seeking financing to be completed, and it's one of these things that really deserve a huge boost from every possible blogger like moi. I remember hearing about this tale back when I was a student, and I honestly thought it was no more than an urban legend...

 It tells the sheer exploits of  Irina Margareta Nistor, a Romanian lady who at the worst of Ceausescu's draconian regime during the 1980s dubbed with her own voice over 5000 foreign films that she distributed via a complex network of truckers and  illegal video clubs. When Television broadcast was narrowed down to a only couple hours a day of Government propaganda, her voice became a beacon of hope and comfort for thousands of families. 

Here is the trailer for the project, while you can learn more over at the Official Site
