CGiii Comment

There are two types of director - apart from the competent and the incompetent - there are the showers or the tellers.

Roxana Stroe is a shower. There is no language barrier here...because, words aren't important.

This is visual...and it hits a perfect balance between the fantastically funny and the soberingly sad.

The framing, the story, the composition...all rather brilliant.

The(ir) Blurb...

There’s a party in the Tokoriki nightclub. It’s Geanina’s 18th birthday and the whole village is there. The neon palm is lit up and the DJ is wearing his golden shirt. Alin and his friends ride up in style in the horse-drawn cart and take over the dance floor. But Alin seems to have something on his mind. His eyes sparkle when he sets eyes on Geanina, which doesn’t escape her boyfriend’s attention. Emotions are running high. Will there be an escalation tonight?
