The first trailer for Cristian Mungiu’s Canned-bound film “Graduation” has been released. The drama tells the story of a family that lives in a small Romanian town, where everyone knows each other, and focuses on parenting and a powerful father-daughter relationship.
The two-minute sneak peek doesn’t have subtitles but you can get the intensity and distress that the director was trying to achieve.
“Graduation” stars Adrian Titieni, Maria Dragus, and Lia Bugnar. Aside from directing, Mungiu was also the producer and writer of the film. Shortly after the feature was accepted in competition in Cannes, it was also picked up for U.S. distribution by Sundance Selects. A couple weeks ago a new clip and the official poster for “Graduation” were released. You can click here to see them.
The Romanian director has previously had success at the Cannes Film Festival. In 2007, his film “4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days” won the coveted Palme d’Or prize.
