Cristi Puiu

While studying cinema at the École Supérieure d’Arts Visuels in Geneva in the 1990s, Cristi Puiu made several short films and documentaries. On his return to Romania, he continued to paint. In 2001, he made his first feature film, Stuff and Dough, a road movie shot with a hand-held camera in a near documentary style. In competition in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs section of the Cannes IFF, the film won several awards in various festivals, in particular in Thessaloniki. Winner of the Golden Bear for the best short film at the Berlin IFF in 2004 for Cigarettes and Coffee, Cristi Puiu then shot The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu, which took the Prix Un Certain Regard in Cannes in 2005 as well as several other awards. His film Aurora in 2010 is the second part of a six-part series entitled Six Stories from the Outskirts of Bucharest. Sieranevada is his fourth feature.
