BUCHAREST: Claudiu Mitcu is in preproduction with a documentary on a hot topic for the capital city of Romania - the effects of a major earthquake. He is working on this new project together with Ilinca Micu and Ileana Bîrsan.

A catastrophic earthquake is a major fear of people living in Bucharest as many buildings are old and haven’t been consolidated for a long time. After the fire in the Colectiv club in October 2016, that killed 64 people and injured more than 100, a law prohibiting public activities in buildings with earthquake risk was issued.

Mitcu plans to make audience understand that the danger is real and, on the other hand, to investigate what the authorities are doing in order to prevent major consequences. We are basca will produce. The budget is 180,000 EUR, of which a development investment of 3,000 EUR from We are basca is already in place, Mitcu told FNE. The project will soon start to apply for grants.

Mitcu also directed The Network / Rețeaua (2015, Parada Film), a documentary about a network of volunteers transporting cancer medication from Europe to Romania and whose initiator, the bank employer Vlad Voiculescu, became well-known through the film and was eventually appointed Minister of Health.

Shooting is due to start in January 2018 and to wrap in December 2020. The premiere is set for June 2021. We are basca is handling the sales.
