AND-EK GHES… is the refrain of the Ctle song in which a young man promises his beloved a future in Berlin if her love is only strong enough to follow him. The song was written by Colorado Velcu, single parent to seven children; heart, motor and chronicler of an extended family from Faţa Luncii in Romania. It`s an extraordinary collaboration based on the trust and friendship between the co-directors Philip Scheffner and Colorado Velcu. We are allowed into a world in which humour, chutzpah and solidarity stand against poverty and exclusion.
