The Cannes Official Competition is something that, as a director, you probably dream of all your life, the place where you want your films to be seen, where you want to be. There are so many “paths” that, at a given moment, you can take – from the idea of ​​the film to the script, from locations to the actual filming, from acting to editing, that you don't even know exactly where to start bound. Surely from God. A big thank you to everyone involved, we made a great team together and here's our first (big) recognition.said Emanuel Parvu.

The plot, in short

Adi is a 17-year-old teenager from a village in the Danube Delta, who, through the efforts of his parents, is studying in Tulcea. Coming home for the summer vacation, Adi feels good with his family and his best friend, Ilinca. When the family is violently confronted with a truth they can neither understand nor accept, the unconditional love Adi should receive from his parents suddenly disappears, and Adi is left with only one solution.

Last year, in September, we were filming in Delta, at Sfântu Gheorghe. Today, we receive this news with enormous joy, news that we share with each of those who have been with us in the work on this film. I think we couldn't have wished for a world premiere for our film other than at the Cannes Film Festival, and to know that our work will be in the Official Competition in the company of films by Coppola, Cronenberg or Lanthimos is like a prize in addition. It will certainly be an extraordinary experience at Cannes, but we are also thinking about the moment when the public in Romania will see this film on the big screens, probably this autumn.added Miruna Berescu.

More information about the film and about the team's experience at Cannes will be posted on the Facebook pages: and Instagram:
