Father Lucian

Here's a bonus picture of the great Cristian Fierbințeanu, took earlier in March in Bucharest. The man's a great artist and the lead figure in my upcoming short "The Unreal Afternoon of Father Lucian".

Pictured here upon hearing the news the I added a spoon of sugar in his coffee.

Yes, he's THAT bitter.

Bilet de iertare – a film by Alina Șerban

I say this in all humbleness: I'm so forever grateful to Alina Șerban for including me in her latest project, the short film "Letter of Forgiveness", as an actor of all things. The amazing part: I even got to say a line.

The film tells the story of Dinca, a young Roma slave in XIX century Walachia and Alina both directed and stared in the film as Dinca's mother.

Out (hopefully very) soon.

Quelque chose de divin

Oh, life! Oh, the life of a resident! Oh, the life of a NEF Animation resident at the Abbaye de Fontevraud for a whole month! Story is that together with Melody Boulissiere, I’ve been developing an animated documentary short called “Something Divine” following a love story, set in the WW2, between an 18 year old young lady and a soldier, back in Romania. And we’re here to take it further.

In 2016 we won a CNC Paris aid for developing.

It’s gonna be a mix of glass plate old photographs and painting. 

It’s a love story, so we’ll make it juicy.

The name in Romanian is “Pur și simplu divin”, the one in French is “Quelque chose de divin”.

Child Mother – Yael Kipper Zaretzky – 2016

An Israeli documentary following the story of several old women who were forced to get married from ages as early as five. The confessions are wisely captured, by having the women’s own adult children lead the discussions. This adds an extra layer of conflict, rather than having the director perform a one-on-one interview. Powerful stories of humans on planet Earth.

“What I wanted was to get at what was the paradox of cinema - that we work so hard on the practical, concrete, visible and audible details of this ephemeral form, precisely in order to evoke an immaterial, invisible and unbearable universe of human experience.” Sally Potter (is the best)
