Description

Moldova

From Wikipedia

Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova (Moldovan/Romanian: Republica Moldova is a landlocked nation in Eastern Europe located between Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. It declared itself an independent state with the same boundaries as the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1991 as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union. On 29 July 1994, the new constitution of Moldova was adopted. A strip of Moldova's internationally recognized territory on the east bank of the river Dniester has been under the de facto control of the breakaway government of Transnistria since 1990.

The nation is a parliamentary republic with a president as head of state and a prime minister as head of government. Moldova is a member state of the United Nations, Council of Europe, WTO, OSCE, GUAM, CIS, BSEC and other international organizations. Moldova currently aspires to join the European Union, and has implemented the first three-year Action Plan within the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

Europe's Poorest Country - Moldova

Organs Across Borders
February 2009
For many Moldovan men, selling a kidney offers quick cash and certain freedom from poverty. But the risks create shocking consequences. A devastating insight to the underworld of organ trafficking.
Business is booming in the criminal organ trading industry. Fifteen thousand human organs are trafficked from the poorest countries to rich Arab and Western regions every year. If you want to make a certain sum of money, give your kidney for 10 thousand US Dollars, says Anatoli. Illegal organ traffickers persuaded him that after the operating table, life would be simple, rich and pain-free. Trusting these lies, he risked death and imprisonment for dreams of a better life. Meanwhile, Danish patient Mads eagerly awaits a kidney transplant. His chances of survival dwindle by 20% each year. He faces the question: Shall I continue to suffer while waiting for a legal transplant or perh

Uncharted Territory
In 2006, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu club was formed in the Republic of Moldova. The club continues to require help from outside sources in order to acquire equipment and money for incidentals (travel, food for the team, awards, etc.).

This film was created for two reasons; to create an awareness of the program and also to show those who have donated where their money and donations are going.

Water of Tears - A Moldovan Journey
Water of Tears' was shot in Moldova and England and is a poignant and thought provoking documentary. The 25 minute film follows the journey of an unique Englishman with a heart transplant who reflects upon his values as a human being whilst discovering new friendships within the warm soul of a fledgling nation in Central Eastern Europe.

Ca La Moldova
With the documentary Ca La Moldova, we tried to create a snapshot of life in the Republic of Moldova. Through candid photography and compelling interviews, Ca La Moldova explores the present day challenges the country faces set against the backdrop of the rich cultural history of the land formerly known as Bessarabia. Ca La Moldova tracks Moldova’s transition from a Soviet Republic to an independent state, through the economic turmoil and uncertainty of the 1990s, to the election of a Communist government in 2001, to the present day issues of emigration, corruption, language, and the tensions that exist between ethnic Romanians and Russians.

Letter from Moldova
Inspired by Chris Marker's "Letter from Siberia," this journey to Moldova is narrated through ten letters that reflect on the collapse of the Soviet Union, the contradictory nature of the current power of the communist party, and the uneasy proximity between post-colonialism and nationalism.

On another level, "Letter from Moldova" is a travelogue that brings to light the problematic nature of travel discourse and its affirmation of cultural superiority by portraying traveling to the East as a journey back in time. The video reveals the limits of the tourist gaze through the narrator's own misunderstandings and inherited prejudices about the Russians, which have been a commonplace of Romanian culture since the 1960s.
