Lost in Transition
Written and directed by Mona Bozdog, Performed by Nikoletta Thoma
Lost in Transition looks at Romania’s decretei: children born as a result of Ceausescu’s 770 Decree that forbade contraception and abortions.
These children, Romanian citizens, lived through numerous transitions: from communism to democracy, from trying to make a home in Romania to making a home abroad, from highly-skilled to illegal and un-skilled labour, from speaking Romanian to dreaming in English.
More than one million decretei have emigrated from Romania in search of a better life. This is the story of one in many.
