JUST LIKE PARADISE

Claudio Zulian started with an obvious fact: the presence of Romanian immigration in Castellón. However, instead of portraying the city from the perspective of this group, he preferred to capture the fantasies of his relatives who have remained in Romania, and who only know the city from chronicles and images of travelers. In the testimonies of these relatives and friends, the city acquires another physiognomy, a face that is no less authentic or real for being imagined. 

Participants in order of appearance: Favius Buzatoaia, Maria Panait, Bebe Panait, Claudia Popescu, Mihai Gagiu, Corina Gheorghe. The filming took place in the region of Dambovita, in Tirgoviste, Fieni, Glodeni, Bezead and Nucet.
