O pungă de roșii stricate și o pungă de cartofi stricați de Simina Oprescu | SEMI SILENT

A bag of rotten tomatoes and a bag of rotten potatoes

O dramă familială în vremuri de opresie
Simina Oprescu
(5’38”, 2017)

An employee from the castle said: „Hurry up, they are coming! Gather all your belongings and run!” By the time they exit the door, they were caught on the stairs by the communists. It was a scam. They took all their suitcases with valuable things and given a part of their amusement two bags, 1 kg of rotten tomatoes and 1 kg of rotten potatoes. Countesse Mocioni and her son, Bubi. They were dragged and forced to work in Sântuhalm, Hunedoara Department, Romania. It was February 1949. Bubi was beaten drastically only in his head, and went to a coma. He learnt to speak again one year later, at the age of 29.

 

Piece created for the sound writing workshop directed by Charo Calvo organized within HER VOICE project, September 2017.
