Actor starring in Berlin-awarded film – arrested for theft

Papan Chilibar, one of the protagonists of the film “Eu cand vreau sa fluier, fluier” (If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle), awarded the Silver Bear in the Berlin Film Festival, was arrested, together with three other individuals, suspected of having stolen money from several apartments in January. The damages are estimated at over RON 80,000.

Director Florin Serban employed 14, under-age or young, prison inmates in making his movie “If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle” These included Papan Chilibar, who played the protagonist’s best friend. He was recently released from prison and accompanied the cast at the Berlin Film Festival.

Film producer Daniel Mitulescu told Mediafax that Papan Chilibar was one of the inmates who had a chance of reintegration. “Almost 90 per cent of prison inmates re-offend, but we thought Papan would be different,” Mitulescu said.

According to the producer, the young man was to be enrolled in school, in the second grade, starting next week and was even to be given a steady job.
