During this year's edition of Trieste's co-production forum When East Meets West (WEMW) (22-25 January), the Cineuropa Marketing Award was handed out among the CIRCLE selection prizes, going to the project One of Us (UK/Romania), directed by Rachel Close.

According to the award's jury, "the winning project combines a dynamic personal investigation with exploration of the deepest intimate issues such as identity, belonging and abandonment, against a historical background that has an uncanny echo in the tumultuous present." We have met with the filmmaker to discuss its details.
