"CINEMA, MON AMOUR" and "Weddings, Music And Video Tapes" - two amazing Romanian documentaries
"CINEMA, MON AMOUR" - Every movie theater has a story. A story about the place, as well as a story about the people who gave years of their lives to that place, who spent most of their lives between its walls, in the projection room, in the lab at the back, inside the ticket booth. Part of the "Save the Big Screen" campaign, the documentary describes the extraordinary efforts made in order to keep open the old Romanian cinemas. Directed by Alexandru Belc
"Weddings, Music And Video Tapes" - A "behind-the-scenes" insight of the Romanian wedding industry, with cameramen, photographers and singers from all around the country in the spotlight. Their life stories, their editing ... Directed by Tudor Giurgiu
