Ovidiu Rom Charity Event at Ceausescu's Palace
Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu speaks to the press. Mungiu is one of the leading filmmakers of Romania's New Wave of the past few years. His film '4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days' won the Palme d'Or at The 2007 Cannes Film Festival.

On Halloween I took photos at the annual charity event for Leslie Hawke's NGO Ovidiu Rom which seeks to help put impoverished Romanian children in school. The gala took place in Ceausescu's Palace and it was simply a spectacular event with beautiful people in an amazing location. I also got to meet one of my favorite actors of all time, her son Ethan. Ovidiu Rom is doing work of the first order and I was happy to be there.
