‘Exit’ (2009) by Oskar Dawicki
Thomas Mailaender, ‘Gone fishing’ (2009)
The Gone Fishing project tells the modern epic of a young man fleeing his new responsibilities as a father by going on holidays with buddies. Through a false compilation of letters from the young dad to the young mom, Thomas Mailaender invents a character: a sort of immature Ulysses, more inspired by the beer, big-game fishing or ping-pong tournaments that by his new-born child.

Catalin Mitulescu, ‘Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul lumii’ (The way I spent the end of the world) (2006)
Tragi-comic coming-of-age tale, set in 1989 Romania, which follows 17 year old Eva and her younger brother Lilu. After knocking down a bust of Ceausescu by accident, Eva is sent to a technical school where she meets Andrei, with whom she plans to escape communist Romania by swimming across the Danube into Yugoslavia and relocate to Italy. Meanwhile, Lilu and his friends volunteer for a children’s choir scheduled to sing for Ceausescu, hoping this will give them a chance to assassinate the dictator.
