Directed by Livia Ungur, Sherng-Lee Huang
Romania, USA / 2016 / 57'

During the 1980s, Dallas was the only U.S. series on Romanian television. Some have speculated that the regime allowed it on tv in order to show the greed and corruption of American capitalism. Dallas’ star Larry Hagman declared that the show helped win the Cold War by planting the seeds of capitalism behind the Iron Curtain. Hotel Dallas follows a real-life Romanian oligarch who, in the 1990s, not only styled himself after J.R. Ewing, but also built the Hotel Dallas, in the Romanian city of Slobozia.
