Cinepub premiere: “A Carton of Kent and a Packet of Coffee”

     Un cartuș de Kent și un pachet de cafea/A Carton of Kent and a Packet of Coffee, the short for which director Cristi Puiu was awarded the „Golden Bear” at the Berlin Festival, may be viewed online, on Cinepub Romanian film platform.
     “I think it's cool that Jarmush is there,” Cristi Puiu said about the Cannes Competition. “In the year I was with Lăzărescu at Cannes, Jarmusch was in the Competition. And I went to see him… me… just a Romanian guy. I gave him the DVD with my short. I was ashamed to tell him: You know… I got a prize, so… please… take me seriously.”
     The short follows the relationship between a father and a very busy son. A short meeting between the two of them reveals two generations with different mentalities, but having, nonetheless, one common guiding principle in life: a carton of Kent and a packet of coffee offered as a bribe can make the difference when you try to get a job.
