Partner / Producer
Helmed by a collective of producers (Ada Solomon, Carla Fotea, Diana Caravia and Alexandru Solomon), microFILM is a Romanian production company created to develop and produce socially relevant films which constantly challenge the cinematic language. Our aim is to nurture fresh talents and help acclaimed directors break new boundaries. We are united by the belief that films should ask questions which are not always comfortable and show perspectives which are not always visible.

House of Dolls is an exploration of a special universe: the annual vacation of a bunch of 70-year-old ladies. Far from men and the madness of daily life, Cica, Nana and their friends isolate themselves voluntarily in a villa in the countryside. Together they blend joie de vivre and memories, melancholia and joyfulness, gossip and jokes. All that to keep up the illusion that time has not passed, that they are still the same beautiful and attractive girls they were 50 years ago.
