Where are you Bucharest?

Vlad Petri,  Romania 2014 76'

Cinematography: Vlad Petri
Editing: Gabi Basalici
Sound Editor: Vlad Voinescu
Producer: Vlad Petri
Film Presentation:
A former police officer, a dog trainer, the founder of a political party and the anti-government protesters: what do they all have in common? They all met on the streets of Bucharest, 23 years since the Revolution, determined to regain the public space. Renouncing the telephoto, talking heads and the background music, the director of this documentary observes, participates, listens and talks to his characters, following their stories from the first days of the protest up until the referendum against the Romanian president, Traian Basescu. Thus, a film arises about a confused world, in a continuous transition between a communist past and an uncertain future.
