"The Forest is Like the Mountains" awarded in Duisburg

PADUREA E CA MUNTELE, VEZI? (THE FOREST IS LIKE THE MOUNTAINS) by Didier Guillain and Christiane Schmidt has received the award of the city of Duisburg endowed 5.000 Euro at the 38. Duisburger Filmwoche. The film, which premiered in this year's Forum programme, tells of a Roma village in the Romanian provinces, where the inhabitants live off the land, making use of all the riches it has to offer. It is sensitive observation of life on the economic sidelines, where a strong sense of community is what keeps things together.
