The first docu-fiction from and about Transylvania

The most enthusiastic team of video, media and photo professionals, gathered by REEA Image Studio invites you to the projection of the first episode from the docu-fiction series “Tales from Transylvania”.

Legends and stories about the wood churches or about the lives of certain exceptional priests are presented in a totally original way.

The event takes place, Thursday, May the 7th 2009, at 5 pm at Theater 74, Tîrgu-Mureş.

Tales from the House of God” is a project that wants to draw attention upon an importan part of our national inheritance that has been systematically ignored - the wood churches.

Reasons for choosing the wood churches

1.Even if they do not compare in size to the world's great cathedrals, they are genuine and undeniable architectural monuments.

2.They are representative for Transylvanian spirituality.

3.Even though there are several wood churches in the world, as in Norway for example, the Transylvanian artisans are acknowledged for their craftmanship.

4.They deserve to be included in the tourist's circuits and pointed out through the stories they shelter.

Reasons for choosing to present the legends and the tales

1.People like tales.

2.These stories, many of them spread orally, will dissappear together with their tellers.

3.Through tales and stories we can create a much easier access to the great historical truths.

4.Transylvania means much more than Dracula's story.
