Lovers & Enemies is a project initiated by Dilmana Yordanova and Mihaela Kavdanska.
As part of The Knot, the project Lovers & Enemies was filmed in Berlin (Mariannenplatz, May 2010) and Bucharest (Parcul Carol I, October 2010) with the contribution of 63 "actors".
The set was installed on the street for two days.
The script offers basic and stereotypical lines which give little but teasing information in order to make the viewer create his own connections and story.
During this period, different men and women were selected from the passers-by and invited to play a role.
They present themselves and their characters and enact a scene from the life of the rich family owning “Taylor Fashion”, their lovers and their enemies.
The result is a 16 minutes video, an ironic comment of contemporary soap-operas dealing with the same aesthetic, emotional and moral issues, no matter the country in which the script was created.
Camera: Thillo Schmidt (Berlin), Andrei Dascalescu (Bucharest.
