A nightmare-like representation of a distinguished teacher’s confusion in the face of a new, young rebel generation’s lack of attention and obedience.
“Cadences”, directed by Radu Gabrea, is influenced by surreal films and impressionism. Radu Gabrea had an important contribution to the modernization of the legislation in the field of cinematography after the Revolution, which would allow the affirmation, a little later, of the so-called New Romanian Cinema. The surprising filmmaker outlines, in his graduation short film, the protagonist: a teacher from his early youth who lives the nightmare of non-belonging and alienation.
