Crossing Dates (Intilniri Incrucisate, 2009, Anca Damian, English subtitles, 100 min)
Each day of our lives brings us new encounters with one another: our paths cross, we see each other, and we speak or don’t speak to each other. Both chance and intention play a part in these encounters, and the consequences can remain like footprints on the paths of our lives. Crossing Dates mixes three separate stories that take place over two days. The characters’ paths intersect, and they affect each other unintentionally. The three stories are united not only by the characters but also by re-readings of the same theme in different registers.
The Third Annual Romanian Film Festival at UMMA kicks off with Crossing Dates, filmmaker Anca Damian’s feature directorial debut, followed by the comedy Wedding in Bessarabia at 7:30 pm. Please also join us on Saturday, September 24 when Romanian composer Cornel Taranu gives a short talk about his film score to Red Apples and his collaboration with film director Alexandru Tatos. The festival will conclude on September 24 with a 7:30 pm screening of award-winning short films.
