The Chalice. Of Sons and Daughters
Dana Bunescu, Cătălina Tesar • Romania • 2022 • 85 min • International Premiere
The families contract marital alliances for their offspring, they evaluate dowries and possible inheritances. The pressure is even bigger when considering that an alliance is completed only if the young couple succeeds in having a baby boy. Besides capturing the traditions of the “cortorari” community, the film follows a young couple in their endeavor to birth a son, the atmosphere surrounding them, the worries in their extended family concerning the gender of the unborn child, who will have a direct influence on the inheritance and the young parents’ fate.
The program will be available soon.
