Ana Vījdea
Ana Vījdea is a Romanian documentary filmmaker. She has a BA in Cinematography and Media and an MA in Interactive Multimedia from Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca. She was an Erasmus student in Turkey and Portugal and a Fulbright scholar at Syracuse University in the United States. Throughout her studies Ana made several short and feature length films that were screened and awarded at various international film festivals. In 2017 she was named one of the "25 New Faces of Independent Cinema" by Filmmaker Magazine.


Young director Ana Vījdea’s short-film focuses on a bohemian American with anarchist views who lives with his dog, Bakunin (whose name is not a coincidence), surrounded by all sorts of charity-shop trinkets which he sells to passers-by. The camera follows him patiently, with no hint of intrusion, capturing not only the “dead time” of his daily life, but also his interactions with his guests or with Bakunin, and his offbeat artistic actions, intended to be revolutionary. “John 746” is a film about inspiration, about what it means to wait and to live outside society and its rules.
