Excerpt from Purcarete’s latest film to open the Film- and Culinary Art-Tasting Festival

The first edition of the Film- and Culinary Art-Tasting Festival will open on Sunday, September 5, with an excerpt from director Silviu Purcarete’s debut feature film, “Undeva la Palilula”/ Somewhere in Palilula, HotNews reports. The 20 minutes’ excerpt from Purcarete’s film which will be screened in the Cetate Harbour is a world preview, as the film is still in post-production.


The film’s protagonist is Serafim, a fresh Medical School graduate, who is assigned a short-term position at the Palilula hospital – a leprosy-sanatorium, an improbable hospital, a gynaecology clinic in which no child is born. The film depicts doctor Serafim’s adventures in Palilula, as years and seasons go by. The cast includes celebrated Romanian actors such as Razvan Vasilescu, George Mihaita, Ilie Gheorghe, Ofelia Popii and Ioana Craciunescu. Horatiu Malaele and Marius Manole are two other resonant names in a cast boasting over 50 actors, most of whom come from theatres with which Purcarete has collaborated in the past years, from Sibiu, Craiova, Cluj-Napoca and Iasi.


The Film- and Culinary Art-Tasting Festival is organized by the “Film Romania” Association (AFR) and the “Mircea Dinescu” Poetry Foundation, with the support of the National Cinematography Centre, the Ministry of Regional Development and Tourism, the Dolj County Council, the Romanian Cultural Institute, as well as the Calafat and Cetate Mayor’s Offices.
