In 2010, his latest short film, Colivia (The Cage) won the DAAD Short Film Award at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale).
As a romanian film, DOMESTIC may have been a shock. A good one though, since this obstinate static camera keeps a great distance to what the film is interested in. And its fixation on the animals, both visual component of the image, and constant thematic centerfold of the film, brings up a great and very fresh filmworld.
