Plus Q&A with director Laurentiu Damian

“Maria Tanase is not just a portrait of the famous singer, but also an appraisal of a world left behind, a world in which she’s known and loved. Personalities,  friends, relatives, even her driver... they all try to resurrect, from words and from the few images we still have, the face and spirit of the woman who was called the ‘nightingale of folkloric song’. But they are old, poor, and almost forgotten  and the reality around them is completely different. The world of Maria Tanase, their world, is no more. The only thing that exists is a dynamic, aggressive and oftentimes vulgar world.” – Laurentiu Damian
