The feature “Morgen”, written and directed by Marian Crisan, will be screened within the London International Film Season, a festival taking place February 14 to 23, dedicated to the productions submitted this year to the Academy Awards Best Foreign Language Film category, the Romanian Cultural Institute (ICR) in London informs. The screening of Marian Crisan’s feature is scheduled for February 18 and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with lead actor Andras Hathazi.
The project marks ICR’s first collaboration with The Tricycle Arts Centre, a well-known venue in North London which hosts theatre shows, film screenings and exhibitions.
Nicolas Kent, The Tricycle’s artistic director, stated: “We are delighted to be hosting such an amazing celebration of international cinema. Often Foreign Language film entries for the Oscars are not screened at all in London, and it is wonderful to give the cinema-going audience an opportunity, not only to celebrate their own countries on screen, but to see films from all over the world”.
Marian Crisan’s feature film debut, “Morgen” tells the tale of a man, Nelu (Andras Hathazi), living at the Romanian-Hungarian border who one day “fishes” out of the river a Turkish illegal immigrant (Yilmaz Yalcin). The latter gives Nelu all the money he has on him so he will help him cross the border. Eventually, Nelu takes the money and promises he will help him cross the border “tomorrow” (“morgen” in German).
