The project is a fictional continuation of a Romanian film from the ‘80s, questioning the meanings of love during communism (Imposibila iubire, directed by Constantin Vaeni, protagonists played by Tora Vasilescu & Serban Ionescu, script based on the novel Intrusul/ The Intruder, written by Marin Preda). 25 years after the original film was made, T.O Bobe, a writer from our generation, constructed textually a new situation in which the two protagonists exchange letters, telling what happened to them during these years of political changes in Romania. The fact that the novel was inspired by a real event and then the film had an open end, led us to the idea to try to reconnect these stories to present life, in an attempt to reflect on what happened to us as community.August has been produced with the prize in money conferred by
Fine Arts Unternehmen to Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor, winners of
the 2006 edition of FAIRPLAY.
