Some Day

Some Day, Romania, 75 min, Digi Beta, HD, Social Issues
How can you best understand a town – Copsa Mica – that by the end of the year 2008 was considered the most polluted town in Europe? I presume that through the people of the place and through their inheritance: their children, a lot of scrap iron, chronic diseases, the Romanian government that’s one-sided when it comes to the factory’s owners, lead and cadmium in the soil, in the street dust and inside the inhabitants’ bodies, but also a lot of music, parties and prayers for a better life, the strong, collective hope that the factory will reopen one day. A portrait of a town still coming to terms with the end of communism and especially with the implementation of capitalism in Romania; a town with a murky past, an uncertain future and a present with a big collective wish that the Nonferrous Metallurgical Plant should reopen.
