Director Marta Bergman will attend the screening on Wed 27 Feb.
Marta Bergman’s bittersweet, smartly observed debut feature is built around a radiant performance from Alina Ioana Serban as Pamela, a young Romani woman. Pamela is a single mother living with her grandmother and daughter on the outskirts of Bucharest. Sassy and spontaneous, she longs to escape a life that is devoid of opportunity. Her plans for the future rest on becoming a mail-order bride. Sporting her best dress and armed with a few words of French (including ‘amour’), she sets out to impress an online suitor who could be the key to starting a new life in Belgium.
