Village of Socks  //  Satul sosetelor (Orig.)

DIR: Ileana Stanculescu
2006 / Germany, Romania / 78 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

A patient camera chronicles the Transylvanian village of Viscri slowly extricating itself from poverty typical to the outskirts of the European union in an original way: by the means of sock making. The trade continues a centuries-old handicraft tradition rejuvenated by the conditions of global export. This is the hope of a German businessman who has turned a part of the village where cows cross muddy streets into a large manufacture. In a relaxed way, the directors capture the lives of the people in harmony with the serene beauty of the surrounding landscape to depict its change in details of everyday scenes.
