The Wetland

(The Wetland)

What does it look like in the remote marshy part of Romania, where the sound of a motorcycle is reassuring? An atmospheric portrait of a place facing depopulation.

This film presents a bittersweet portrait of perhaps the last moments of the secluded, archaic Romanian village of Letea, lying on the Danube Delta, struggling with a lack of money. The peaceful and idyllic experience enters an environment in which time seems to stand still in the slow moments of everyday life: one can dwell on a cat sitting carefree on a fence, enjoying the sun-drenched and cow trampled paths that resound with the barking of dogs. The project, directed by Ioana Mischie and produced by SKYSCAPES, was created as part of the Berlinale Talents.

Virtual Reality at One World

In the VR cinema, two-three bands of films are played each day at specific times. Viewers attend the screenings as they would a classic cinema. There are two-three short VR films in each slot, so the total time of a visit to the VR cinema does not exceed 30 minutes. The VR cinema has a capacity of 20 seats and reservations are made either online or directly in the DOX Gallery. Selected screenings will be followed by discussions with the creators and experts.
