An Evening Sunrise

“An evening sunrise” is a captivating short film revolving around a subject that touches us all: the subtle influence of modern technology, particularly mobile phones on our lives and relationships. The film calls for inner reflection while it gently reveals a variety of life’s essential aspects that are easily neglected and even forgotten nowadays. It reminds us about reconnection to ourselves, the joy of a simple life, the beauty of nature and the fulfillment of togetherness.
Adele, a Romanian woman from Switzerland returns to the country after a painful breakup to visit the native village of her deceased grandmother and to experience a traditional “hora” dance. In the meanwhile, a group of “hooked-to-cell-phone” townspeople are heading to the same village to attend a wedding. The story brings them together in the sublime country side where they get over the mirage of technology and end up having an uplifting “hora” with the locals, just like in the old times.
