BEST DEBUT ROMANIA

AMAR
Diana Gavra • Romania, Spain • 2023 • 125 min

With courage and determination this debutant filmmaker builds a relationship of trust and intimacy with her protagonists in order to bring us close to a group of people for whom theft is -as they describe- “a way of life”. Without judgement or sensationalism -and allowing people the space to frankly express their complicated lives - this film skilfully reveals the people behind the stereotypes.
