The film “Cookie” represents the second short film that I direct and produce and in which I act, in the same time, as well as the third film that I make and pose for. I consider it to be a complex film that will manage to deliver a small message to its audience. “Cookie” debates are subject sensitive, taboo, whispered in circles that are meant to provoke and incite the imagination of our public, as much as to transmit a powerful message related to the essence of cesareans and the handicaps that surround us. the image of many NGOs and I’m sure that many brands will pay attention to the message and the desire to belong to social strata not supported or protected by cultural or even traditional systems. I admit, I was easy to debate a topic that seemed to be written well and, how come, I think that the voice of a great number of women, unheard generations, braved up the courage to slip through the divine funnel in my mind . and Darius (n.r. Co-screenwriter Cookie) – said Sabina Lisievici, the director of the film.
