“At the Bottom of the Sky”, a film directed by Igor Cobileanski, has been selected as an entry at the East of the West Section of the Karlovy Vary Festival (the Czech Republic), June 28 – July 6, according to the festival’s website. The world premiere of “At the Bottom of the Sky”, a Romanian-Moldovan co-production, will be running at the Karlovy Vary Festival. The film tells the story of a teenager, Viorel, who lives with his mother in a Moldovan city. He has neither great ambitions, nor great expectations and makes all his money from illegal activities.
Corneliu Porumboiu and Igor Cobileanski are the screenwriters. “As You Like It”, a short feature documentary about a village’s ageing community who has a single passion: to have their photos taken for display on their tombstones. “Mood Indigo”, a Michel Gondry film adaptation of Boris Vian’s novel “Foam of the Daze” will open the Karlovy Vary Festival.
Film director Igor Cobileanski was born in 1974, in Chisinau. As a child, he played in several films, among which “Pain”, made based on a script written by Emil Loteanu. Cobileanski is a graduate of the Film Faculty of UNATC Bucharest. In 2006, he directed his first film, a short feature entitled “When the Light Dies”, followed by “Sasa, Grisa and Ion” (2006), “Boredom” and “Inspiration” (2007), which were selected as entries at various international festivals.
