Dear all,
as I promised, there is a possibility for you to discover what my country is through the interviews I have been taking from the people that are taking part in the documentary CA LA MOLDOVA www.calamoldova.com

Due to current the events unfolding in Moldova we have decided to release the documentary film “Ca La Moldova” early to the entire world, for free. Please watch the 60-minute film about current day struggles in Moldova. Our film directly relates to current events unfolding in the Republic of Moldova and we encourage you to give your support to those who need it. Download it, post the address, and spread the film throughout the Internet.

The making of the documentary film “Ca La Moldova” has been an incredible learning process and moreover an invaluable cultural exchange. We have had tremendous support along the way and are grateful to everyone that helped us, inspired us, and pushed us to tell this story through the voices of Moldova.We encourage you to take a minute to check out our website, watch our trailer and learn more about our story. We hope you enjoy our work.

With the documentary Ca La Moldova, EXPAT Pictures has created a snapshot of life in the Republic of Moldova. Through brilliant photography and compelling interviews, Ca La Moldova explores the present day challenges the country faces set against the backdrop of the rich cultural history of the land formerly known as Bessarabia. Ca La Moldova tracks Moldova’s transition from a Soviet Republic to an independent state, through the economic turmoil and uncertainty of the 1990s, to the election of a Communist government in 2001, to the present day issues of emigration, corruption, language, and the tensions that exist between ethnic Romanians and Russians.

The film’s narrative begets the questions: was life better during the Soviet Union or now? Perspectives from all segments of society capture the soul of a nation as it comes to terms with its past. Will the country move forward toward a liberal democracy or try to retain the security and stability of Communism? As Moldovans try to chart a course for the future of their country a new challenge emerges. Many Moldovan youths desire to leave the country. Spurred on by a lack of opportunities, small salaries, corruption and patronage the majority of young Moldovans believe their future lies outside of Moldova’s borders. Will they remain abroad or return home? Can Moldova’s economy be sustained on remittances? What will Moldova’s future hold if an entire generation emigrates with no plans to return?

Through Ca La Moldova, Expat Pictures hope to stir a national debate among Moldovans as to what the future holds for their country. Ca La Moldova hopes to inspire the youth of Moldova to embrace the challenges their nation faces. Ca La Moldova is a call to Moldovans abroad to return home. Ca La Moldova illustrates the beauty of a nation with an all too unfortunate past as it looks for a brighter future.

I hope you won't be indifferent to what me and my friends did in this documentary.
This is my first experience of co-producer and I really believe that people can learn more about my country Moldova through the stories that simple people say.
P.S. You'll be able to hear my trembling voice as well in this documentary.
Thank you!
Yours, Victoria

the pleasure is mine!

Dear Katea,

We were ready to present it in our country during May Festival but because of the conflict the country deals with they postponed it. But I realized that sharing through World Pulse will be also efficient. Hope you like it!
