Lumina Amintirii

Alternative title
In the Light of Memory
Synopsis
LUMINA AMINTIRII explores evocations of memory in contemporary post-socialist Bucharest, nearly twenty years after the fall of Romanian communism. The film is shot in Cismigiu Gardens, one of the oldest public parks in Bucharest. Interweaving recollections of the past with glimpses of present-day scenes from the park, the film constructs a montage of stillness and motion, images and voices, landscapes and people. Tracing paths through both the mind and the city, it invites viewers to activate their own memories and imaginations along with those unfolding in the film.
