A Mere Breath
aka Doar o rãsuflare
First screened in September 2016
Director: Monica Lãzurean-Gorgan. Documentary about a Romanian father in an economically struggling town, praying to God to cure his disabled daughter.

Twitter Capsule: Coolly watchful camera sees a family held together and pulled apart by father's faith that God will heal disability.

VOR:   I've seen more probing and stylistically adventurous documentaries, but I'm impressed how this one avoids clichés about faith and disability.
