CELTS is a family drama with elements of comedy written with a desire to make a fun, crazy, nostalgic, emotional film that audiences wish would never end. CELTS is a film about the disappearance of one’s country and loss of one’s identity, portrayed through three different generations within one family, and their daily routine while preparing the birthday party for the youngest daughter. The idea was to simultaneously deal with my childhood and with my adult life, by trapping them inside one house and one day, and by giving an 8-year-old perspective on that period, with an opportunity to grasp what my parents were going through, now that I’ve reached their age.
