How Long Winter Lasts in Romania

Director: Iris Ponkina.
"HOW LONG WINTER LASTS IN ROMANIA" is an observational travelogue through contemporary romanian cities and countryside in the wintertime. Fragments of "Mioritza", the romanian national ballade intermingles with Jonas Mekas poetic visions. Romania, a land of contrasts, on the promising doorstep of European Union still seems to be in a state of post-communist syndrome. Romania's resemblance to Lithuania intrigues questions and skepticism. Winter as a metaphor is I.Ponkina's debut short film.
