Crai Nou / 2021 / Romania / 85 min
A twenty-something woman named Irina is longing for escaping the constant battles and bouts of violence, the resentments and reproaches of the members of her extended family who run a holiday resort in mountainous Rumania. All the characters in Crai nou are trapped in a terrarium of anger and anxiousness, blessed by the church and enforced by desperately plotting uncles and analphabetic cousins who need Irina for her writing and numeracy skills, but will never recognize her, let alone allow her to lead an independent life. So,
it is Irina who tests the elastic snap of the ties that bind her to its despairing extremes.
The director was born on 1984 in Bukarest, Romania.
