The Day I Learned to Whistle

Moldova | 2019 | 20 min | In development
Usually in Moldova parents leave their children with the grandparents in the countryside for the whole summer. I was one of those kids, discovering the world through my grandfather’s vivid stories while my parents performed military service. Grandfather was a great storyteller, musician and role model. His stories, always so inventive and unusual, were born from real life experience and a lost childhood. The most touching story was about the sheep that save him from hunger after the war. It was the reason he spent his life as a shepherd. I always wanted to be free and creative like him and in the day he died I learned to whistle.
