100 Risings focuses on the cultural space shared by Moldova and Romania, two countries that recently witnessed a flux of contemporary music inspired by folk music.
This documentary is a music anthropology journey. It aims to explore our genuine folk through the eyes of a musician from a completely different cultural background, Stefan Haslebacher (Sha) - Switzerland, who will try to discover the authenticity of this cultural space by experiencing the daily routine in Moldova and Romania, interacting and jamming with our greatest musicians and by travelling through our beautiful landscape - including a legendary place at the border between Romania and Moldova named '100 Risings', a destination left unknown even for many local people.
