An interview with Ana-Maria Comănescu, the director and screenwriter of "Horia", interviewer Edvinas Pukšta.
"“I looked a lot for these locations. (...) I wanted the landscapes to reflect his emotional journey so the nature around him changes as he changes.” - Ana-Maria Comănescu
The daring and youthful film ""Horia"" tells the story of a restless teenager with a big crush. Having only briefly seen the girl who lives in another city, Horia decides, against all odds, to find his beloved. Riding on an old motorcycle “borrowed” from his father, he meets not only various obstacles on his search for the girl but also a new unexpected friend along the way.
The director genuinely hopes for this character to inspire viewers to escape into their own, albeit fleeting, inner freedom.
Ana-Maria Comănescu is a young film director from Romania who originally planned to become a theater director. At the age of 13, she marched to her parents and said that she wants to become a film director. By now, she has completed several short films, and ""Horia"" is Comănescu's first full-length feature film.
