Central European Initiative (CEI) Award for Love is not an Orange

Love is not an Orange” celebrated its Italian premiere at At Trieste Film Festival, where Otilia Babara won the Central European Initiative (CEI) Award for best interpretation of contemporary reality and dialogue between cultures. (27th of January 2023)

“Otilia Babara carefully and delicately collects private and intimate material, restoring the portrait of a generation of mothers and children forced into love at a distance. And in doing so, she also restores the portrait of a post-Soviet country in which it was women who unwittingly made the transition from communism to capitalism.”
