Alibaba (short film)

Director: Vlad Popa

Year: 2022

A grandmother, a mother and her little girl meet at a Arabian restaurant to negotiate the girl’s transfer to a better school. Because they didn’t manage to solve it in the ordinary way, the grandmother calls a friend that works at a prestigious school to find out what are the possibilities of transferring the girl there. After the phone call, the two women have to choose between a disability act, through which the girl will have to simulate a disability, or an ethnicity act which will lead to the expulsion of a Roma child. Despite the grotesque bargain, the women end their lunch with a Turkish dessert.

Filmed on Red Epic Dragon
