13 Shades of Romanian

Life of Romanians living in England.

13 shades of Romanian, excellent, well produced documentary of thirteen Romanians living in England.

My main criticism, is how skewed a representation of Romanians in England?

The Romanians featured appeared to be the educated, intelligent, cultural elite. All spoke excellent English, better than 90% of the native population.

For the first two, can watch for £1 each, which is reasonable. Get to the third, and they want £3 to watch all three, and restricted to 72 hours.

I would expect unlimited streaming for £3. I would expect to be able to buy on DVD for £3.

I would have chopped the footballer in Part III, found a more interesting Romanian, for example talented singer-songwriter Jewelia.

13 Shades of Romanian was funded through crowdfunding.

13 Shades of Romanian Party

Luckily, from Trew Era Cafe, it was not too hard to find Queen of Hoxton, where the 13 Shades of Romanian Party was being hosted. Head off down the road and keep walking.

Queen of Hoxton something of a dump, I have been to better squatted buildings. Its one redeeming feature a rooftop terrace.

On coming down from the terrace, the party I found was in the basement, with its own ticket office. I had assumed it was the party as I walked in.

Filming was taking place of the party for the film 13 Shades of Romanian. I assume some sort of crowd scene.

The music was awful.

A somewhat aggressive Romanaian wanted to know why I was taking photos.

I did not stay long.

Outside, I chatted to an attractive Romanain called Gabriela who told me she was studying architecture and was helping out with the filming.

She enjoyed the music of Jewelia (who has provided the sound track of 13 Shades of Romanian) and enjoys reading Paulo Coelho (and has read about half of his books).

Gabriela directed me to Liverpool Street Station. I could have caught No 26 bus direct to Waterloo Station, but I had no idea from where to catch and neither had anyone else.

Aquarium soundtrack for 13 Shades of Romanian

13 Shades of Romanian

13 Shades of Romanian

Aquarium by Jewelia is the soundtrack for 13 Shades of Romanian.

13 Shades of Romanian is a  documentary that questions the popular misconceptions of Romanians living in Britain, as seen through the eyes of thirteen Romanians.

13 Shades of Romanian is funded through crowdfunding, the target was met last week.

They may have been wiser to have chosen StartJoin or FairCoin, as both support community and art projects.

The funding raised so far, will cover filming.

There are still post-production costs to be covered.

FairCoin and Robin Hood Hedge Fund are looking for suitable projects to fund that expand the commons.

Last year Jewelia released Monsters.
