Letiția Popa

Letiția Popa (Romania)

Letitia Popa is a Romanian filmmaker, currently serving as an artistic researcher at the Netherlands Film Academy through the Master of Film – Artistic Research In and Through Cinema. She holds a bachelor's degree in film and TV Directing from the National University of Theatre and Film Bucharest, complemented by a master's degree in documentary filmmaking. Her films have received recognition at esteemed European film festivals, including Astra Film Festival, FipaDoc IFF, Jihlava IFF, Visions du Reel, and she has been honoured with an award from Périphérie Docs.

Specialising in documentary filmmaking, Letitia harbours a profound interest in the narratives of daily life, providing a platform for marginalised voices through her observational cinema. By intertwining personal experiences with broader societal issues, she perceives filmmaking as an intimate act of witnessing. Furthermore, Letitia contextualises her work within the 34-year transition period from a communist to a capitalist economy in Romanian society. Her films delve into the everyday realities and socio-economic challenges faced by individuals during this transformative era. Exploring systemic issues ranging from corrections institutions to healthcare and migration, she portrays the individual as an integral component of the larger societal framework. Letitia employs observational cinema, alongside performative and experimental approaches, to delve into these themes with depth and nuance.
