3 provocative short films from Moldova, a discussion and a bit of wine
Join newly appointed Moldovan Ambassador Angela Ponomariov and guests from the Moldovan Embassy and community in London for a screening of three provocative, insightful and engaging short Moldovan films, followed by a conversation with the film directors.

These three films are each approximately 20 minutes in length and are in Romanian with English subtitles. The first, entitled “Ana” and directed by Natalia Saufert, is a disquieting tale of the consequences of sexual abuse in a small village. “The Escape” (“Evadarea”), directed by Nicolae Negara, reflects on the state and status of disabled young people in the country. Finally,“Chers Amis”, by director Valeriu Andriuta, presents a slice of administrative life in a small-town school, revealing profound problems in a society still mired in a sad past but looking to a better future.

The screening at EBRD headquarters will be followed by a short discussion and Q&A session with all three film directors. Following this, there will be a sampling of Moldovan wine at a drinks reception for all participants.

This event is organised by the EBRD Cultural Programme and the Moldovan Embassy in London with a contribution from the Moldovan wine distributor, NOVUS BH MAGISTER Ltd., Guildford, UK.


Doors will open for registration at 17.15 and coffee and tea will be served. The screening will begin promptly at 18.00, followed by a discussion and Q&A session, and drinks reception.

Please register by Tuesday 6 November 2018.


Please note that all guests must bring a form of photographic ID and may be subject to a random bag search.
