Domestic release: October 23

After winning the Best Debut Award at Transilvania IFF, a Special Mention at Karlovy Vary and Anonimul IFF Trophy, The World is Mine enters the Romanian cinemas on October 23, 2015. Nicolae Constantin Tănase's drama is a colorful and poignant film, alive and loud, about the generation of the 2000's, for which popularity is measured in views on YouTube and Facebook likes.
 
16-year-old Larisa (Ana Maria Guran) struggles to stay afloat after falling for the wrong guy. The small-town world in which good looks and money give power over the less fortunate doesn’t favor the rebellious and stubborn teenager. Increasingly at odds with her school, her friends, and her parents, Larisa lashes out with devastating consequences. With assured skill and disarming authenticity, first-time feature director Nicolae Constantin Tănase offers a powerful look into the inner lives of teen girls, with a tornado-like Ana-Maria Guran leading a cast made up of mostly non-professional actors discovered primarily via Facebook.
 
An independent production by Libra Film and Radu Stancu's deFilm, The World Is Mine was written by Raluca Mănescu and was shot in 2013 with a budget sourced exclusively from private parties. Except Iulia Ciochină, who previosly played in several short films, the main actors Ana Maria Guran, Oana Rusu, Ana Vătămanu and Florin Hrițcu are all non-professional.

"The intensity with which Tănase follows the misadventures of his protagonist is so impressive that we simply beg the director to choose a genre film as his sophomore project", according to Cineuropa.org.
