From now on (Romania, 2012, 36”)
Stefan turns 18 years old and his father decides it’s the day he should become a ‘man’, with everything that this implies. Only that things are not exactly as he believes and the lesson he receives from his son is a dramatic one.
Finale (Romania, 2015, 15”)
Winter. A deserted beach. A violet sky. A hollow sound in the air. A van. A 40 year old man dressed in a suit laid on the sand looks towards nowhere. His eyes are tired and lacking any expression. Night, the same beach, the same sky, the same sound. The man sits in his van trying to write something. O pack of wild wolves surrounds the van trying to get in.
