A feature ethnographic documentary in development about the lives and hardships of three Romanian old women from mountaneous rural areas. The three women live alone and manage for themselves in isolation.
We are attempting to capture on film the last Eve: the last woman of the natural world before she disappears. These are the last years to be able to do so. Capturing these women has immense added value for humanity: preserving their ways of life, thoughts, traditions before they go extinct, leaving only us to be confronted with distant memories of edenic beauties.
For Romanian values, this work is especially of great impact since the women chosen to be studied and portrayed in the documentary are from rural, untouched, wild Romania.
The women still have what is at the core of the real Romania: peaceful communion with nature.
