QUIET ODD #2
Looking at you looking at me
Ivana Mladenovic vs. Xandra Popescu
Our second afternoon of screenings follows the lead of #1: filmmaker Ivana Mladenovic will adapt for the screen Adrian Schiop’s latest novel, whilst guest moderator and flavors curator Xandra Popescu currently shares wall space with artist Simion Cernica at MNAC for the exhibition Never Alone.
So join us for the opportunity to watch 3 of Ivana’s films, In the Village, If 6 Was 9 and Turn Off the Lights and engage into a debate about her work, fueled by Xandra. ODD provides the summer bites.

The Soldiers will be filmed in 2016.
