Short description

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.

Expectations

We would love to meet potential international partners to bring this project to life. On the long term we would love to depict remoteness also in other regions in the country and continent. We would love to inter-link the current project with potential complementary projects depicting remoteness and its impact on education, lifestyle, society.

How innovative is the project

Exploring Letea's multi-layeredness in 360 is a world premiere and we tend to make it an outstanding one. The transmedial project reunites: a 360 short documentary with full ambisonic sound and land/aerial/underwater scenes, a campaign. On the long-term, we deeply want to expand on this premise. We aim to contribute to the education in one of the most remote villages of Romania through virtual reality - we will familiarize the children to explore and to make 360 diary films. The project is meant to be expanded on the long-term and to become an educational and social improvement manifesto.
