SUNDAY / November 5th / 15:30 // Cinema Muzeul Țăranului
Synopsis: Ionaș is an old Romanian countryman who spends his summer nights in a trailer, guarding his cornfield against the starving boars that come to
eat his crops. In his nocturnal taciturn meditation, Ionaș has to resist falling asleep, because otherwise he knows he cannot be aware of anything but his dreams. Facing a fight greater than him, Ionaș might win the battle against the boars, but soon realizes he cannot stand against something as big as time.
