Please Hold The Line
  • Year2020
  • Duration86 min

This film follows cable technicians in Moldavia, Romania, Ukraine and Bulgaria as they visit their customers, entering each time in their own individual universe. It catches our eye with its skillful editing, colourful glimpses of local stories, and fierce view of a so-called connected society in a region that has been torn apart by nationalism. It also demonstrates in a humorous way our dependence on communication technologies.
