Hot Streets is a common project of a trip in time, both personal and objective, through the streets of Bucharest in the summer. This collaboration between Mihnea Mihalache-Fiastru (P’afară, Șușanele) and Cristina Bogdan (ODD) materialised in a filmed piece which includes performance, interviews, monologues, storytelling and actions of the city’s various characters.
”Hot Streets” was conceived as a homage to Bucharest, undescribable and unqualifiable, a trip into the subjective and torrid atmosphere of summer days in our city. It is Cristina’s first movie project, and the third of this kind from Mihnea, who is the creator of the series ”P’afară” and ”Șușanele”. The shooting lasted for 2 1/2 months, and the team includes Petre Fall (image and editing), Horia Baldea (sound), Andra Chițimuș (music), Cosmina Moroșan (social media & PR), Otilia Mihalcea (graphic design), local and foreign artists, friends, neighbourhood anthropologists, politicians and others.
