A short documentary film, directed by young Moldovan filmmaker, living in Iași, Violeta Gorgos, has been screened by Alternative Cinema at the National Library in Chișinău. The film, titled ”A Mother from the Kingdom of Shadows” (original title: O mamă din împărăția umbrelor), with the length of 28 minutes, tells about the life of a mother in a prison from Rusca village, Hâncești. An issue that for most of us doesn’t cross our minds.

The director and the main film character, the ex-prisoner with her family, were present at the screening. Open conversations have followed it, about this film, and also the entire filmography of Violeta Gorgos.
She says that now she is working for a new episode, with the same protagonist, already free and with the same crew: Marin Iliuț – camera and Virgil Mărgineanu – producer.
The moderator for this event has been Dumitru Grosei.
