A spoon's tale

Adrian-Nicolae Furtuna | Romania | 2012 | 68'


The documentary presents one of the oldest Roma crafts: wood working, showing that today is practiced only by the oldest people from the community. The film evokes a period banished long time ago, without linking it to the social realities that now confront this group. The film evokes a time when "plow in the ground for two fingers'. The film revived a craft in an area where it no longer have been practiced for 50 years. The film talks, also, about identity, Rudars considering themselves descendants of the Dacians, not wanting to be seen by the others in any way as Roma.
