Self-portrait of a Dutiful Daughter

Self-portrait of a Dutiful Daughter

Cristiana is a 30-year-old woman, brought up in a “proper”, bourgeois middle-class family. Her time is split between writing for her PhD in Earthquake Engineering, conversations with Alex and Michelle, her two close friends and occasional, but eagerly awaited rendezvous with Dan, a married man with whom she is romantically involved. After her parents move out of the family apartment, she decides to get a dog. It is something that she has wanted ever since she was a child. Now that she lives on her own, she can finally fulfill this wish.

Ana Lungu was born in 1978 in Bucharest, Romania. She studied Psychology and Film Directing and has worked as script supervisor and assistant director. She co-directed THE BELLY OF THE WHALE (with Ana Szel), which was selected for competition at the Festival del Film Locarno and Vancouver International Film Festival. SELF-PORTRAIT OF A DUTIFUL DAUGHTER, Lungu’s first feature film, premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival. // Films (selection): BURTA BALENEI (The Belly of the Whale, 2010), AUTOPORTRETUL UNEI FETE CUMINŢI (Self-portrait of a Dutiful Daughter, 2015 / CE15 Award - Best Fiction Film)
