Director: Radu Ciorniciuc

Acasa, My Home tells the story of a family that lived for 20 years in the wilderness of Vacaresti Delta, until the place gained the status of a protected area - Vacaresti Natural Park - the first urban, natural park in Romania. For four years, director Radu Ciorniciuc followed the Enache family through their great adventure: from a life in complete harmony with nature to a life full of challenges in the great urban jungle of the capital. The film won seven film festival awards in 2020, including for Cinematography at this year's Sundance Film Festival. It is the director's feature debut.
