Moon Hotel Kabul
West Coast Premiere
Director/Producer: Anca Damian
Main Cast: Florin Piersic Jr., Alexandru Nagy, Rodica Negrea
Tour de force by the trailblazing Romanian director Anca Damian who probes the layers of truth following an encounter between a disillusioned journalist and woman interpreter in war-torn Afghanistan. Winner of Best Director Award at Warsaw International Film Festival and Mirada International Award at the Madrid Film Festival.
A Romania-France co-production, Moon Hotel Kabul follows Ivan, a charismatic but cynical investigative journalist with a sharp sense for story and no time for compassion. Everything changes after a one night stand in a Kabul hotel room with a translator named Ioana. Not long after their encounter, Ioana is found dead, and Ivan sets out on an investigation unlike any he has undertaken. A gripping thriller with the best qualities of a sophisticated mystery, Moon Hotel Kabul will keep audiences guessing until the end.
