"This is a personal story but it has a universal connotation in terms of identity, belonging and searching"

The winner of the Cineuropa Marketing Award at this year's WEMW discusses her project, which combines a personal investigation against a background with an uncanny echo in the present
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.
