Hamptons Doc Fest Screening of “Acasă, My Home”
March 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - March 15, 2021 @ 11:30 pm
As part of THAW FEST, The Hamptons Arts Weekend Festival of March offerings by 21 arts institutions, expanded from one weekend into a month, Hamptons Doc Fest will be presenting the documentary “Acasă, My Home,” for the five days starting Thursday, March 11.
Set in Bucharest, Romania, “Acasă, My Home” (2020, 86 min.), directed by Radu Ciorniciuc, tells the story of a family of two adults and nine children that is moved from a life of harmony with nature, living an unconventional life in a humble dwelling in the wilds of the Vasaresti Delta, to a city apartment with the conveniences of a bathroom and washing machine, so that the land and its rare flora and fauna can be made into Vacaresti Nature Park, and the children can be enrolled in school. The move requires many adjustments for the family.
The film, which was shown at Hamptons Doc Fest in December 2020, won seven film festival awards in 2020, including the Sundance Film Festival’s Cinematography Award, and has been featured on various “best of” and “contenders” awards lists.
