1. A dream about making movies
In 2007, before the economic crisis took over Romania as well, in full consumerism bliss, a trademark of post-European integration, I managed to get a handsome bank loan and buy myself all the necessary minimum equipment for producing documentary films.
I was dreaming about making movies for 14 years, ever since I was still sleeping with Beckett and Ionesco under my pillow. Since then I kept this belief: we, Romanians, live in a country deeply rooted in the absurd.
The idea of making documentaries came like a natural follow-up. How would you not want to make a film in Romania?
