Creative note: in 2004, when the Bush administration made a first attack on women's reproductive rights, I was new to the American soil, but I was paying attention. As a Romanian born under the communism, I had to tell this tale about women's beauty, complexity and resilience. Unfortunately, as a first Eastern European woman to attend the Columbia University MFA program, most of my teachers wanted me to make a film about the Romanian Revolution that happened a decade before. I politely declined and created Still Center. Over a decade later, this film stays relevant, and is rediscovered by new generations of women on both US and Europe.
When Eerie finds out she is pregnant with triplets she needs to face the world - from her philosophical boyfriend, to her mother and the state of (women's) things. A Romanian dramedy of love, doubt and tough decisions
