SHADOW OF A CLOUD (30', Romania, 2013)
Director: RADU JUDE

RADU JUDE delivers his usual mix of gritty realism and humorous satire with SHADOW OF A CLOUD, awarded the Heart of Sarajevo for Best Short Film 2013. The story revolves around Father Florescu, as he is summoned to a dying young mother’s bedside to say a last prayer. Going beyond the stereotypes, priesthood is shown at the intersection between clerking and divinity, in the difficult position of delivering miracles to people who only half-heartedly believe. With a narrative that defies classical storytelling, SHADOW OF A CLOUD is a complex film that explores the trials and tribulations of man faced with his own finitude. (Diana Mereoiu, BIEFF 2013)
