Parallel Worlds documents the current state of a Romanian community from Racșa, who has left its country in search of a better life in the United Kingdom. They have left their lands with a single thought in mind: to go back one day, and enjoy the results of their investments. Pride is one of the most important characteristics of the Racșa inhabitants. If something goes wrong in their land, they will move mountains to correct it. Yet they never forget their traditions and native land, no matter where they live and work. Parallel Worlds follows this community journey, both in Racșa and in London and shows a contrast between two different worlds. It concerns one of the most hard-working communities I have ever seen. The project documents history, family and traditions and ultimately a beautiful and extraordinary people.
