World tour – L.A. Premiere of Via Transilvanica 

In the Spring of 2022, Via Transilvanica Project returns to America in several major cities, this time with the documentary film about building a most spectacular long-distance trail in the largest country in Eastern Europe, Romania.

Via Transilvanica: The Road Ahead is directed by Mircea Gherase and shows the intricate making-of story of the Caraș-Severin county trail stretch, which also happens to be the longest section of the unity road. The film caravan is a premiere for Via Transilvanica Project in the U.S. and will be presented by the founder of the project, Alin Ușeriu.

The Via Transilvanica USA Tour – LA event will take place on May 30 th , 2022 at 7:00 PM at the Regal Cinemas/LA LIVE 1000 W. Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015

Co-presented by SEEfest, the South East European Film Festival; Romanian- American Chamber of Commerce, L.A. Branch; and the Consulate General of Romania in Los Angeles.

“I think Via Transilvanica is a project Romania has been waiting for. In order for this project to survive and to continue to make sense, it needs international involvement not only from the Romanians abroad, but from everyone who believes in long distance hiking, nature, slow tourism, and in sharing the country’s beauty with the world! I am looking forward to meeting you in the USA to tell you the story of Via Transilvanica, the unity road!”

-Alin Ușeriu, president of Tășuleasa Social
