CONNECTION LOST (11', Turkey/Romania, 2012, dir: Paula Onet & Manuela Borza)
At the boundary between documentary and fiction, the two directors' short is an astute commentary on the relationship between them - who are young adults temporarily studying abroad - and their parents back home, in Romania. The two recorded the Skype sessions with their relatives, without them knowing it, this bringing forth the documentary type of authenticity. The main topic is their staying in Turkey which brings to light preconceptions and attitudes of the ones at the other end of the line.
