Valea Jiului - Notes
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 13'30'' | Roumanie | 2018
Children of the Jiu Valley are familiar with roads. Theirs but especially those of the adults. Roads through the tunnel, the mountains or the Valley. All the roads seem made to leave as well as to return. The parents of these children, once the inhabitants of an old industrial area of Romania, take now long roads to reach the West, wherever they may find work. They return too seldomly. They send money. Their children are a lot like orphans. Many of them experience depression. Some choose to take the fatal road to Paradise or Hell. Maybe with the hope of coming back to a kinder vale.
