Parcelpaedia 
Short Fiction Film 14’53’’
2020

Parcelpaedia is a film that responds to Italy Syndrome- a type of depression specific to Eastern European women who work as caregivers in Italy. The movie features Dr.Cara, a fictitious physician who examines parcels sent by these migrants to their families in Moldova. The movie creates an absurd world with its own logic, where objects are alive and active in the Moldovan-Italian migration.

Life as a Museum
Animation-tribute to F.Starik
2019

  

An animation made for an exhibition-tribute to F. Starik, the poet of Amsterdam who, among other things, initiated a unique movement of writing poems for lonely funerals and reciting them at those ceremonies. The exhibition consisted of the poet’s legacy, poetry recitals, photographical dioramas and this animation. It took place in September 2019 at The Hague’s Literature Museum, right after the museum acquired a large part of the oeuvre of F. Starik (1958-2018).
