2 flowers

The film is called “2 flowers”, as this, in my culture, marks the difference between the living and the dead. It is traditional to offer even number flowers to the dead and odd numbers to the living. In this film, I tried to capture the in-between: 2014, in Romania pensioners are crowding the Funeral Home to take out 5 year loans to advance pay their funerals. I found this out when I agreed to help my grandmother with her preparations and discovered that tradition is overruled by money and death comes with a 3% discount if you sign the contract on the same day.
