'Across the Forest' documentary

A quick word from the filmmakers below:

My friend Justin Blair and I spent 7 months in Transylvania filming a documentary about the supernatural beliefs still prevelent in the rural villages there.  The documentary, entited Across the Forest, details these stories which are dying out because of the encroaching technology and modern values that come with it.  As far as we know, this is the only film of its kind.  We felt it important to shine a light on this part of the world because of the reputation Transylvania has in the west thanks to fiction writers of the last hundred years.  We shot the film in Maramure┼č and The Banat and edited it in Cluj Napoca where we lived for the production and post-production.   Below are some relavent links.
