Photo essays: Your stories in pictures
This abandoned place was once a filmstrip stock, where all the copies projected in Cluj Napoca were stored.
At spring 2013 gypsy kids found out that the area was unguarded, so they stole all the metal boxes, leaving the strips torned out.
Some weeks later, a journalist found out the story, so it appeared in the Romanian media. Cinema fans and filmschool students went there, searching for their favourite movie remains.
I decided to make a short movie (video poem) at the store with my friends, of a Hungarian poem, written by Kapecz Zsuzsa.
About the poem (there isn't an English translation, so this is only my adaptation) :
She is looking for her veil, and her beautiful feathered hat. A few more roses, the music she hears, accompanies her in stuffy rooms. "Gentlemen, I'm coming. " - she sais. They're waiting in the garden, as she musingly walks, her hair swims after her, and on the winding road shadows are more and more darker. As inside her eyes. In front of the gate, the roses fall. The dagger flashes, the mantle will spread at the garden path. And a barrette is left behind in the grass.
