The making of the film is also unique. The author is the one who walks through the village, communicating directly with the people. "Besides these families, we find the Moldovan village with its landscapes, at first a bit gloomy, with many abandoned houses and deserted streets. A beautiful moment, surprised by us, were the preparations for Christmas. I caught moments when the villagers work side by side to help each other. These images make you miss the life of that used to be, in our villages," says the director Diana Vlas.
At the end of last year, Diana Vlas presented the idea of the film "Dor de casă" (”Missing home”) in the WeDocMigration project, implemented by OWH Studio, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme and with the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. By winning the competition, she obtained the necessary support for the production of this feature-length documentary.
