Nanu Tudor

My Uncle Tudor
In intimate close-ups the camera captures an idyllic scene that seems to belong to a different era: ripe cherries, black-and-white photographs and a summerhouse full of memories of the seemingly carefree childhoods of several generations. Old aunties talk about the past and Uncle Tudor, too, answers the filmmaker’s questions. Little by little, she confronts him with her trauma, for which he is responsible.

Olga Lucovnicova

Born in Moldova in 1991, she began training as an accountant when she was 16 but then quickly turned to photography. In 2011, she took up a degree in cinematography at the Academy of Arts in Chișinău. After graduation, she received a scholarship for the DocNomads Joint Master Degree in Documentary Filmmaking in Portugal, Hungary and Belgium. Her films, which particularly address social issues and aim to create a platform for discussion, combine a purely observational style with poetic elements focusing on human emotions.
