More details…

Shot in 2017 on 35mm as a final for the department of Film Image, at the National University of Theatre and Film, ”Useless Dialogue” is inspired from a short story called ”Ramon” that is actually written by the actor who is cast in the film as Ștefan; in his full name: Ștefan Pârcălăbescu. The bachelor final was taken by my colleague and friend, Florin Marica, whom I’ve met in my first years as a student at the University of Film and who took a chance with me, a screenwriting student, and gave me the opportunity to write and direct my first 35mm short film.

The Film talks about a young man’s nihilistic point of view over the world and his solipsistic position in which he believes that no matter how deep we dive into a matter, and regardless of how much empathy we are able to feel, we cannot fully comprehend someone else’s perspective in life if we do not share their same authentic life experience.
