Man of Nature and Me

Orsolya Veraart
37 minutes


Shot in the forest and hills surrounding a small Transylvanian village in Romania, the film portrays Gabi, a fisherman and forager. We enter his life closely connected with nature. We get to know what he thinks of and how he feels about nature; Romania and life in Romania, the fate of the average Romanian surfacing now and then.The film also presents how the relationship between Gabi and the film student unfolds, and how this development influences the course of the film. The narrative turns into a metanarrative on the filmmaking process; and the initially naïve, charming film turns out to be different.
