Petronela Serb completed an MA Thesis exploring“Romanian Documentary in Transition: The Role of Documentary Films in Reshaping Post-Communist Romanian Identity”, under the supervision of Dr. Irene Gammel. The research aimed to generate a better understanding of the interplay between social, economic, and political transition and the production of documentary films in post-communist Romania.
