O luna din viata lor (2016)
O lună din viața lor, a Tudoriței, a Alinei și-a lui Petre, a fost și o lună din viața noastră – sau a ta -, doar că trecută în alte condiții, într-o locuință decentă, care beneficiază de încălzire, pe o stradă care nu e din ghetou, cu un serviciu care nu te trimite la lopată la 5 dimineața. „O lună din viața lor” ne poartă, vreme de mai multe săptămâni, prin destinele acestor oameni. Mergem și în ghetourile din Berceni, alături de personajele noastre echipate în combinezoanele lor verzi. Tudorița și Petre sunt gunoieri. Cum se vede lumea din marginea asta de lume? Vă arătăm în 46 de minute de video ca un pumn în stomac.
When life offers no options, what can one do to make a living? Georgiana and Mona, two young women who arrived in Bucharest with the desire to make something of themselves, end up working in the live sex chat industry. For Mona, this work is rapidly becoming impractical, as her daughter is growing up and shielding the child from her double life becomes increasingly problematic. Despite the fact that the two portraits emphasize very different personalities - with the explicitly candid Georgiana and the more gentle Mona - the two women share an almost sisterly bond, an exception in such a ruthless industry. Granting unprecedented access into their world, the two women allow for an up-close depiction of their lives and work, bringing the viewer into an environment that they would rarely be able to glimpse.
