The documentary written and directed by Ana Dumitrescu and produced by Jules et Films company, speaks about last century’s Romania seen by a man lost in history. The main character, Liviu canter, a 92 years old man, has survived major historical events.
“Licu, a Romanian Story” is a documentary about how times goes by and about the old age, a meditation on one’s own condition and ephemerality. At his age, Licu remained alone with his memories about family and the important moments of his life. Each sequence of the movie is built like a photo from an album.
The movie was presented in March at the 14th edition of the ZagrebDox Festival and at the One World Romania International Human Rights and Documentary Festival.
