Author Barry Gifford mines Romanian culture for „The Phantom Father”

Barry Gifford: “Making this film in Romania – these people are wonderful craftsmen and they make do with so little, comparatively speaking, and their budgets are so much lower. But they really so much care; it’s like the old days of film making. They’re not dealing with special effects over there; they have to make everything happen themselves.”


„The thing about Romania is that they have every possible type of landscape. They filmed ‘Cold Mountain’ there, so you could think of it as the mountains of Tennessee or the Carolinas or the Sierras. Everything exists there in terms of the geography.”

„It’s a beautiful country, but it’s also mysterious and…how can I describe this? It’s eerie. When you are in a country moving around among gypsies and the Hungarian population and isolated villages … that’s another essential part of this movie. So you see the different levels of society — you see people who are still driving carts led by horses.



Now, Gifford and Romanian director Lucian Georgescu will be showing the latest film based on his work, „The Phantom Father,” in Chicago this weekend as part of the Gene Siskel Film Center’s 15th Annual European Union Film Festival.
