MCFF Feature – Please Hold the Line – Sat 12PM – New England Premiere
July 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In “Please Hold the Line,” from director Pavel Cuzuioc, Cable technicians in Eastern Europe navigate a modern-day Tower of Babel. With unflappable humour and a dose of philosophy, the technicians hold the line in a dissonant world.
Running Time: 1 hour, 26 minutes
PAVEL CUZUIOC was born in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. In 2000, he moved to Vienna where he followed courses on film directing and film production at the Vienna Film Academy. His films where screened at various international film festivals such as Locarno Film Festival, HotDocs, IDFA, Clermont Ferrand ISFF, DocAviv FF, Thessaloniki IFF, FIPA, GoEast, VIENNALE and others.
According to Cuzuioc, “We like to think of communication devices as a people binder. Yet, with a larger variety of communication tools than ever before, each human being continues to insist on his personality and perspective, social disintegration is as strong as ever. Please hold the line is about people who fix communication defects – like cable technicians fixing a tv, phone or a modem – as well as about their customers. A palette of human typologies. I am interested in the human being, with its everyday struggles. It is these individual universes that fascinate me the most.”
