Cinema: Crossing cultures in Romania’s border zone
9 August 2010
"Salonta, where we take the pulse of migration,” says Evenimentul Zilei, welcoming positive feedback following the world premiere of Morgen on August 7, the 63rd Locarno film festival (Switzerland). The first feature film by Romanian director Marian Crisan, this Franco-Romanian-Hungarian co-production tells the story of the friendship that develops between a Romanian living in Salonta, near the Hungarian border, and a Kurd he saves from drowning in a river. While the Kurdish man dreams not only go to Germany to join his son, her rescuer hosts within his family and tells him he can leave "morgen" – "tomorrow" in German.
