Katharina (România, 2022)

Director: Florian Zapra

Writer: Florian Zapra

Cast: Florian Zapra, Sarah Rus, Vlad Colta

Screening followed by Q&A with director Florian Zapra

The feature film debut of Florian Zapra, from Bistriţa trained as an actor in Dublin, who evolved along the way to the position of producer and director, is a Teen-Ghost movie that tells the story of a group of young people who set off on Via Transilvanica and meet the ghost of Vlad Țepeș's girlfriend. They bring her to the city, trying to integrate her into society and use her in different ways, only the ghost Katharina is curious and difficult to control. 

Katharina is an independent Romanian film, being a 100% Bistrita production. The fact that the cast also includes 19 students of the Film and Acting Studio founded by Zapra in 2017 gives it a remarkable freshness, the young (still) amateur actors giving credibility to the roles including the small clumsiness, perceptible rather as characteristic of their age, in generally, than lack of experience.

The project is part of the national cultural program “Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023” and is financed and organized in partnership with the Municipality of Timișoara through the Center for Projects.
