Valentina Postika in attesa di partire

Valentina Postika in attesa di partire

Valentina is a Moldavian caretaker who works for Carlo, an 88-year-old former Resistance fighter and leader of the Pesaro Communist Party back in the 1950s. Their life together alternates between silence and fighting, moments of closeness and distance. He relives his past through old home movies and photos. She thinks of tomorrow, of returning to Moldavia to her three children. The hours, days, months flow slowly, far from the chaos of the city, while Carlo and Valentina spend a last year together.

“Carlo and Valentina are alien to one another, yet united by the same condition of ‘waiting.’ The unavoidable nature of their conditions makes them opposites and complimentary. Through VHS tapes and Super 8 films, Carlo closes the circle of his images and experiences. He takes his leave from the world, stopping time after his political disillusionment. In the present there is Valentina, with her music, habits, phone calls with her three children and Sunday packages for Moldavia.”(Caterina Carone)
