TOGETHER AND APART is a phrase which may describe the relationship between two partners as they twist and twirl through the intimate movements of a dance. The phrase may also speak to the condition of the Romanian diaspora, divided by distance, united by history and family ties. Most powerfully, though, the phrase hints at the relationship between nationalities, you and me, separated
by time and space, but bound together by our fears and hopes for the future.
The Romanian Film Festival in London (RFF) features a glittering and stimulating array of titles. Very popular and talented actors Adrian Titieni, Alexandru Papadopol, Ana Ciontea and Vlad Ivanov will come from Bucharest in order to join us for the UK premieres of the latest Romanian films.
