Europe’s wildest and one of the most remote regions is situated in the North-Eastern side of the Delta of Danube, Romania. Geographically-speaking, it may be easily considered the borderland of Europe. Hardly accessible for the regular travelers, without any land roads, Letea is one of the most astonishing archaic villages of the Delta (along with C.A. Rosetti, Sfistofca, Cardon). The spatial diversity of the area is outstanding. having the most Northern subtropical forest in the world, with 700 year old oak trees that are set alongside glimpses of sandlands and surrounded by wetlands and rivers. The remote playground intertwines humanness, wilderness and profoundness. We aim to explore Letea’s story through the eyes of three main characters, representing three different generations. The focus will remain still on the young generation and the way it reimagine the future of the area. Lately there are several phenomenons impacting the region: the lack of potable water, the growing depopulation (Tulcea county having the most worrying depopulation percentage in the country), the massive privatisation on the lakes and rivers, the fragmentary education for the younger generations. The villagers are left more and more without company, without the right to fish in any surrounding water. However, they try to find their own remedies. Through local humour and coping with remoteness, they have learned how to conserve a reiterated sense of joie-de-vivre.
