« Did you enjoy Life today ? Your Life ? And the Sun, its rays, the sunset ?
Did you look at the Sky today ? The infinite Sky ? »

Joyful and beaming, Larisa Oltean overflows with deep and true Love for the Sun. For Nature. For Life.
Inspired by her beautiful soul, I have tried to honor her philosophy of Life by directing this short film when I was traveling and exploring besides her some of the greatest and wildest places of Romania.

An Ode to Life.

Directed, filmed & edited by Mathieu Le Lay
