What is hiding within the four walls?
Women stories ...

 In 2006, Romanian production house Mediapro Pictures shot 23 short TV films under the general title Women Stories.

The films are shot in a documentary style and each episode deals with a burning issue such as domestic violence, alcoholism, paedophilia, venereal diseases, breast cancer, homosexuality, drug addiction and many more.

Director of the original: Ioan Caramazan

The work on this project can be described precisely as «breaking the ice» and I still have split feelings towards it. First of all, as a viewer I am not in favour of dubbed films or television series. Even though dubbing has been the tradition in many countries on our borders, the Croatian audience, including me, is not used to watching dubbed material – for example, we would not want John Wayne speaking any language other than his mother tongue. (The exception is of course animated film, the difference being that they do not feature ‘live’ actors). Siniša Svilan was the one who wanted Nova TV to be the first to broadcast dubbed foreign TV programmes and with his persuasion we threw ourselves into deep waters, not knowing if we would be able to swim out (at least, that was the case with me).
Despite many difficulties, such as taxing translations and adaptations, a lack of sufficient knowledge of the Romanian language and disastrous atmospheric audio recordings that we received from the Romanians, we managed to do a solid job.
However, even with all our effort and the quality of the final result the problem remains that our audience is not used to watching dubbed foreign programmes.
To sum up, it was an extremely valuable experience and I have never regretted participating in the project.
