”To The North” thriller by Romanian director Mihai Mincan has been selected in the Orizzonti competition of this year’s Venice Film Festival. The event will be held from August 31 to September 10, 2022, according to Romania-Insider.com.

To The North is inspired by true events. According to its website, the film tells the story of a “religious Filipino sailor working on a transatlantic ship, who discovers a hidden Romanian stowaway. Convinced by a Bible this emigrant has, the sailor starts playing a dangerous game, involving his crew, his faith in God and an innocent man’s life.”
