Acasă, My Home

For two decades, the Enache family - nine kids and their parents - lived in a shack in the wilderness of Bucharest Delta, one of the biggest urban natural reservations in the world, with lakes and hundreds of species of animals and rare plants. When the authorities decide to claim this ecosystem, the family is told to resettle in the city - a reality they know nothing about. Kids that used to spend their days in nature have to learn about city life. Radu Ciorniciuc’s debut is a study of gentrification, seen through the eyes of a family trying to adapt to the new life they never asked for. (Sundance Film Festival)
