 Read about and watch the Annecy-selected film by Julia Gromskaya, Fiumana.

Julia Gromskaya is an Italian whose films melt dreams (sometimes nightmares) with intense colorization, and themes and characters resurface in many of her works.

In Fiumana (The Flood), a girl at the window is waiting for her companion and watches the passing of time and the waltz of the seasons.

The film is a welcome visual study on the personal and the natural, in which progression of feelings mixes eloquently with the circle of seasons.

 Fiumana has been selected in the official shorts competition at Annecy (France) 2012.
