Wild BerriesRomania/Hungary/Portugal, 2018, 20 min, Colour
Wild Berries is the sensorial journey of a solitary boy immersed into his own world, wandering through meadows and forests, heading further towards the unknown at every step. Left alone in the desolate rural landscape of Romania, he plays hide and seek among gigantic sunflowers, converses with the cuckoo, spies on pigs, races with the wind, and roams the endless fields. Observant and patient at times, bored and restless at others, he waits and searches for something that seems to remain out of his reach. He looks back at us as we follow him into his slowly disintegrating world, driven by a desire towards something in ourselves that perhaps never existed.
