Via Transilvanica is a road passing through a great diversity of ethnic, cultural, historical and geografical elements. It connects communities and identities and may even help one find oneself.
With as many as 1,400 kilometres of winding road, from Putna to Drobeta-Turnu Severin, Via Transilvanica is a revealing and healing experience with its magical landscapes. It is an invitation to slow traveling, in deep connection with history. And as one faces one’s physical limitations, one might even find a certain liberation. The documentary shows the Tăşuleasa Social team’s efforts to improve the road in the Caraş-Severin area and also follows a guide and a group of four women travellers who rediscover Romania’s beauty on their journey on Via Transilvanica. A film that truly nurtures our need for adventure.
Waves on dry soil

Lucian’s life is divided between Ecuador, Portugal and his visits in his native Moldova. He dreams of one day representing his country at the Olympics.
This entails going above and beyond, from repeatedly contacting the Federation to giving surfing lessons. Capturing not only his dream but also the myriad of roadblocks faced by those just starting their professional journey, the documentary shows the surfer navigating both the waves in the ocean and those on land. Beyond the remarkable soundtrack and the exotic scenery interlaced with quaint and urban images used as a backdrop, we discover the bitterness of various situations as phrased by the protagonist's grandpa – “You know nothing about how we live here, in Moldova.”
