Looking for George

  Looking for George - selling cheese in a Romanian markey

Love and death in Romania

With music and slides, Helena Drysdale takes her audiences to the most remote and beautiful parts of Romania before and after the collapse of Communism. First with her Romanian friend George, a poet/priest, and then in search of him, she embarked on a dramatic and moving journey into the heart of Romania. Part romantic adventure and part detective story, she describes her growing entanglement in a web of intrigue and paranoia.
