Postcard from Somova, Romania / Pocztówka z Somovy, z Rumunii

Running time: 20'

AUT, ROU 2011, 20’

This cinematic postcard tells not of an idyllic vacation or exciting adventures. On the contrary, time seems to stand still in the Danube Delta near Somova. Goats, a horse, dogs and cats wander about, litter lies on the ground. The camera captures the aimless movements of the animals with great attention to detail. The beauty of this “postcard” unfolds in the apparently incidental seamless observation – to Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Partita for Double String Orchestra.
