The County Council of Brasov offered the Junii - the most impressive characters of Brasov traditional customs - a movie on DVD about their groups history. The event is part of a larger project of the County Council of Brasov, where it has been included also the manufacturing of the flags of every group. The official launch of the DVD was made in presence of the members and leaders of all the Juni groups, the president of the Culture Committee of the County Council of Brasov, many guests and of course, the producers of the movie.
Documentation from abroad
The president of the County Council of Brasov, Aristotel Cancescu, is the initiator of this project, and in order to finish it, it has been necessary a hard documentation work, including the consulting of Vienna's and Budapest's archives. "I have personally taken care of the realisation of this movie, which was produced in MIX TV studios. For now, we will offer as a gift to the Juni 200 copies of the DVD, and also we will officially give the flags to every group. We have worked at this movie for more than 7 years, and most the archive images were found in Vienna and Budapest, only a few in Brasov", declared Aristotel Cancescu.
Enriching the EU's patrimony
Stefan Aranyosi, the president of the Culture Committee of the County Council of Brasov said: "we fully support all the cultural projects; we event went to Brussels to present an authentic folkloric evening and also a culinary exhibition. EU is expecting of us to come and enrich the cultural patrimony of Europe. It is very important to transmit to the next generation all this beautiful customs we have."
The delivery of the flags
Another important moment was the delivery of the flags to the Juni groups by the president of the County Council of Brasov, Aristotel Cancescu. He said that in Brasov there three cultures: Romanian, Hungarian and German, who respect themselves mostly because in the past, there were 10.000 Romanians 10.000 Hungarians, and 10.000 Germans in Brasov, and most of the Romanians would speak German and Hungarian also. In the quarter Scheii, the groups of the Juni were Romanians and their flags wore, besides the three national colours, other suggestive folkloric or historical scenes. Most of the flags wore the image of the king Michael The Brave and on the other side an image of one member of the group.
