In the Name of the Father (d. Vladimir Dembinski, 2021)

In a secluded village in Transylvania, Emma, ​​Jacob's daughter, discovers the lie about her mother's disappearance some time ago. Emma confronts Jacob and the village priest might know something. Emma insists on finding out the truth and in her relationship with Jacob creeps distrust and suspicion.

Born in 1987 in Romania, Vladimir Dembinski studied film directing at the National University of Theater and Film in Bucharest. While studying, he directed several short films and documentaries, including "Tennis", his graduation film that has been selected at festivals such as Clermont Ferrand Film Festival or Curtas Vila do Conde. He is currently working on his first feature film script, CRISSEA IV.
