THIS WEEK’S ROMANIAN MOVIE

Crossing Dates - feature film by Anca Damian - online on CINEPUB

Crossing Dates – feature film

Good-tempered triangles

„Crossing Dates” is the debut feature of Anca Damian, known in the meantime for other films such as „Crulic – The Path to Beyond”, „Magic Mountain” and the recent „Perfectly Healthy”. The film is part of the category of Romanian films that touch the delicate subject of meetings between people, which are far from being simple meetings: they are abyssal interactions, between expectations, histories and personal imagery.

Plot summary: Each day of our lives brings us new encounters with our fellow-people: our paths cross, we see each other, and speak or don’t speak to one other. Then we walk away for the next encounter. Both chance and intention play a part in these encounters, and the consequences may remain as foot prints on the paths of our lives. The movie mingles 3 separate stories which take place over two days. The characters’ paths intersect, and they affect each other unintentionally. The three stories are united not only by the characters but also by re-readings of the same theme in different registers.

Q&A

Questions and Answers, in short Q&As, is the acronym used by the film festivals to name the discussions held after the screening between the public and the team behind the film. We bring to you for watching online an important number of Romanian short films, and after the „screening” we invite you to a Q&A session involving questions that had been asked by our Cinepub team or already addressed by our viewers on our Facebook page and the filmmakers’ answers. The Q&As represent a way to find out more about the people behind the films: directors, scriptwriters, directors of photography, producers or actors.

Cinepub is an online platform dedicated to Romanian cinema, a project established by GAV in partnership with Google.
It is a project that aims to bring to the audiences not only films of well known directors, but also independent productions made by those with a real passion for film but at the beginning of their careers.
