American Romanian Festival

Saturday, September 17, 3:30 pm - 6 pm
Helmut Stern Auditorium

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.

American Romanian Festival

Saturday, September 17, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Helmut Stern Auditorium

A train takes two newlyweds hoping to find an easier way to make a living—a conductor from Bucharest and his wife, a pianist—from the hard life of Romania to the woman’s homeland of Moldova, where the wedding will be held. The wedding not only reunites her with her family but allows the couple the chance to receive presents and money that they desperately need to start their new life together. In the midst of political debate, social complexities, and economic hardships, what emerges is a portrait of a community that celebrates joie de vivre and humanity. The film holds on to its optimism while it delights artistically in the sociopolitical complexities of a region that has known its share of sorrows.

Wedding in Bessarabia is part of the Third Annual Romanian Film Festival at UMMA. 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.
