Romanian Diary. Timișoara is a multidisciplinary project, which brings together cinematography, photography and theater, and it builds upon a series of unexpurgated and immediate confessions, a genuine reflection of interpersonal relations, decisively influenced by the urban environment, but, equally so, a call to social and community involvement. The architecture of the production is determined by the actress’s biographies, which unearths the parts played by parents, friends, strangers, and the city - through its inhabitants, neighborhoods, artists and the local administration, in defining us as individuals – spaning from the nostalgia of the first experiences to the immediate present. The confessions are built almost exclusively on the life experience of the actresses, whether its junctures of happiness or pain, success and failure, trauma and depression, or alienation and belonging.
