People of Romania ‚Miki‘
camera: Sorin Irimies
“Miki” is part of a TV series (3 minutes documentaries) named “People of Romania”. These short stories present portraits of some strong motivated people, who voluntarily and often anonymous with a positive attitude and actions, cherish the traditions and help the surroundings or people living in it. This outstanding persons that I admire should be an example for their will and belief and through their eyes we can see various meaningful things that one can find in my country.
