Dear Alex Fund supporters and friends,
While on the jury of the Sundance Film Festival this year, I saw Acasa, My Home, a new documentary from Romania; it was simply staggering.
I was not surprised that it won the Jury Prize for cinematography, as it was astonishingly beautiful – as if Terrence Malick went to Bucharest. Naturally, I was drawn to the film because I have gotten to know Romania through my mother’s work there, as well as through my own participation in The Alex Fund. It revealed a part of Bucharest I never knew existed. It also exquisitely captures the struggle between having an independent, authentic life and surviving in society, something I believe we can all relate to. I really look forward to revisiting the film, and having the opportunity to talk about it with the filmmaker, Radu Ciorniciuc.
I encourage you to sign up to see this extraordinary, prescient film – about how we interact with nature – next week, and I hope you will join our discussion on Thursday, May 7th at 9 pm EST (8 pm CST). Feel free to call Wendy Kahn (917-622-2542) if you need help getting started.
