Ada Solomon (*1968) from Romania has been working extremely successfully as a producer for more than twenty years, and that throughout Europe. Her seemingly infallible sense of talent has already catalyzed several careers, and her versatility has been proven by short films as well as feature films and feature-length documentaries.
For Soldatii. Poveste din Ferentari Ada Solomon has again successfully collaborated with a “film talent”: with her semi-documentary feature film debut Ivana Mladenović has been invited to the renowned festivals in San Sebastián and Toronto. She tells a modern gay Romeo-and-Juliet story between an anthropologist and an ex-convict, set in the surroundings of the Roma community in the eponymous quarter of Bucharest.
The film will be presented during the festival opening on 25 April with director Ivana Mladenović and Spotlight guest Ada Solomon present.
During a Masterclass on 28 April, Ada Solomon will offer insights into her way of working and her wealth of experience as an internationally successful film producer.
SPOTLIGHT 2018 is presented with generous support from the Romanian Cultural Institute Vienna.
