Chuck Norris vs Communism is a 2015 RomanianBritish documentary film written and directed by Ilinca Călugăreanu. The film is about the illegal importation of American action and religious films on VHS cassettes to Romania in the late 1970s and 1980s, which the filmmakers believe contributed to the fall of the Nicolae Ceaușescu's communist dictatorship. The film recreates incidents and features interviews with Romanians such as film dubber Irina Margareta Nistor.
