We spent last year contemplating the world with insecurity, a lot of time at our disposal, engulfed in the solitude of the apartments, through cross-thoughts and with a lot of care for our body.
What do we do when we have all the time in the world? Are we loyal to our talents? Does our curiosity disappear with age? We discussed all this with those who understand them best: our grandparents.
Retro Radio Podcast is an audio documentary about our grandparents’ subjective perceptions, constructed by eight artists with experience in music, contemporary art, theater and drama. Retro Radio is the first podcast to provoke many of the clichés about old age.
Conceived and written by director Ioana Păun, together with musicians Cătălin Rulea, Sillyconductor and Diana Miron, the Retro Radio series was built during 2021 together with actors Flavia Giurgiu, Sorin Dobrin and Ruxandra Manoi, and with grandparents ready to accept challenges, to account stories about fashion, fun, relationships, jobs, victories or failures.
