Director: Nora Agapi

Ioan-Matei Agapi, a charismatic Romanian documentary filmmaker in his 80's, owns a unique collection of 16mm films documenting almost 50 years of the country's history. His daughter has decided to make a film about her father's impressive archives.
In the unconventional surroundings of his old apartment, they reminisce about the past until one day, when Ioan is informed by a public officer that he must leave or be evicted from the apartment where he has lived 40 years of his life. Ioan's years of work suddenly transform into a huge burden, and the film unexpectedly changes into drama where conflicts with city officials reveal old and hidden conflicts within the family.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Land of districts.
