DIGGING FOR LIFE

Romania 2011, 56 min, Russian and Romanian, Hebrew & English subtitles

The only living residents of the largest cemetery in Moldova are the gravediggers who work there. Director Pavel Cuzuioc follows their daily routine and paints a metaphor of human existence. At first glance it seems that the petty everyday worries and small joys, the tragedies and larger issues of life are a never ending continuum. In fact, the ongoing digging and the passage of time inevitably lead to the final destination, where life ends.
