Twenty years ago, Gică Enache made the radical decision to turn his back on Romanian society. He built a cabin in the countryside just outside Bucharest, and there he and his wife brought up nine children. Now the government has made ambitious plans for this verdant delta region, and social agencies are urging the family to move into a rental apartment in the city. Acasă, My Home demonstrates the complex relationships that can occur between human kind, urban environments and nature. The film won the Special Jury Prize for Cinematography at Sundance and was screened at IDFA 2021.
Acasă, My Home is Romanian spoken and subtitled in English. Admission is 18+.
