- 2017 SAN SEBASTIAN Best Actor (B. Dumitrache)
Taking its title from the vast tidal bore that travels inland on the Amazon River, Pororoca is another powerful entry in the Romanian New Wave that takes a close look at a family whose life turns upside down when their five-year-old daughter goes missing. In his third feature film, director Constantin Popescu reaches technical perfection with an 18-minute uninterrupted sequence. Pororoca dramatises a situation that every parent dreads as it tackles human emotions of fury, sorrow, guilt, despair, and obsession through a missing child case. Bogdan Dumitrache, who portrays the father, has won the Best Actor Award at San Sebastian Film Festival where the film has premiered.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
