Ionas Dreams of Rain


Dragoș Hanciu (RO) – Director, DOP
Ileana Szasz (RO) – DOP
Maria Bălănean (RO) – Editor

In the middle of the night, Ionas, an old Romanian peasant, watches for the wild boars that could ravage his cornfield. He dreams of his father and believes that this dream will bring rain. But usually wild boars come with the rain… A short that takes us somewhere else, placing ourselves between the natural and the supernatural, sleep and death, the long time of the present and the snatches of the past.
