The Honorary Consulate of Romania to Connecticut is inviting Romanians and their friends to the event Via Transilvanica – The Road Ahead Documentary, that will take place on Thursday, May 26, 2022, 6:30 PM, at the Social Hall, St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church, 569 George St, New Haven, CT 06511.
This event brings the film caravan Via Transilvanica to the Connecticut screens, and is a premiere for the Romanian diaspora in the US. The projection has a 1 hour duration and will be presented by Alin Useriu, the founder of the Via Transilvanica project (the movie is directed by Mircea Gherase and produced in collaboration with Tășuleasa Social). The screening of the documentary film about what it means to build a long-distance trail in Romania will be accompanied by a project interview and a Q&A session, that will conclude this networking, fundraising and promotion event.
What is Via Transilvanica? VT is a long-distance trail in Romania meant for walking, cycling, and horse riding. When fully developed, it will be about 1,400 kilometers long and will criss-cross the country from Putna to Drobeta Turnu-Severin, passing through almost 600 communities. Most of the trail is currently marked every kilometer with personalized stone markers. Via Transilvanica is inspired by other long-distance trails around the world, such as the El Camino, Pacific Crest Trail, Appalachian Trail, etc. We invite you to attend this event to find out more details (via https://romanulonline.org).
