Your Best Video of the Year

Hello! My name is Ionut Turda and I am a young filmmaker (25 years old) from Transylvania, Romania . I have developed a great passion for films even since I was 9 years old. When I turned 10, I have received a gift from my parents consisting in my first video camera. I can honestly say that it was love at first sight. Starting with that age and until now, I produced hundreds of projects on different topics.

This is not just another video meant to emphasize the contrast between two different worlds.
There are people waiting for us to prove that we care. This is their cry for help. They live in fear and danger. We saw that reality with our own eyes and we felt the thrill on our own skin.
This story is meant to raise our awareness of their struggle and to determine us to take concrete measures in order to help them. The time has come to try to stop the indifference.
There are thousands of people who need us.

Let's not make them wait for too long. Now, it is high time to act!
