Radu Ciorniciuc
RO FI DE 2020    55' 86'
⚬ Human Interest ⚬ Society 


For 20 years, nine children and their parents lived in the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, in perfect harmony with nature, until they are chased out and forced to adapt to the big city. With an empathetic and cinematic eye, filmmaker Radu Ciorniciuc offers a compelling tale of an impoverished family living on the fringes of society in Romania, fighting for acceptance and their own version of freedom.
