In March 1983, Ion Bugan left to Bucharest, in the middle of the night from his village in eastern Romania to Bucharest. After the 200 km-drive, he parked his car in the center of the capital. In the trunk he had hidden two placards that he had painted with anti-Ceauşescu messages. Ion mounted the placards on his car and started driving around. But his protest did not last long. As expected, a few meters later Ion was arrested. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and from that momment on, Ion’s wife and children have been placed under the watchful eye of the Securitate.ROMANIAN PREMIEREAUDIENCE AWARD NOMINEE – VOTE !

“I am almost 30 and often I find myself wondering where I’d like to be at this age. When I was born in 1990, my parents were probably asking themselves completely different questions, while cradling an infant through the Romanian post-communist mayhem. What I remember from those first years is going on seaside vacations and hearing the speakers broadcasting info on the children that got lost on the beach. I never got lost, but I’ve always tried to imagine those who did. Now, the idea of looking for them starts to gain meaning, too. More than ever, I feel that we share a connection.” (Alina Manolache)INTERNATIONAL PREMIEREAUDIENCE AWARD NOMINEE – VOTE !

With its breathtaking beauty, Transalpina is more than a spectacular roadway serpentining across the mountain. The age of the road connecting Transylvania with Walachia is counted in thousands of years. Throughout history, people have forgotten it more than once, but for the shepherds who have never stopped walking it with their flocks despite the borders set by transient authorities. The film invites the viewer to a multilayered journey: along a unique road associated with the names of three kings, on mysterious underground paths once walked by the Dacian’s god Zamolxis, and up to the sky, where things that happened in the times of the mythical giants gave mountain peaks and valleys the names they still carry today. The author morphs his life-time fascination with the hidden stories of the streams, glacial lakes, alpine crests, vales and mysterious caves into an exquisite piece of filmmaking, stepping beyond dates and facts to reveal the very spirit of the place.
