Movie Diary 11/17/2020

Acasa, My Home
(Radu Ciorniciuc, 2020). Almost like a documentary version of Leave No Trace: This film follows the travails of a family living in a watery wilderness right next to teeming Bucharest. Eventually the authorities arrive, and an adjustment to city living follows. The filmmakers gained astonishing access to the family, and nothing is easy or comforting about the story we watch. (Seen as part of the Romanian Film Festival in Seattle, which also has new features by Radu Jude and Cristi Puiu, among others.)
