'The Egg Painter': Detailed Art Work in the Romanian Village Ciocăneşti

The tradition of egg painting is passed down by the elders in the Romanian village Ciocăneşti and has been around for a hundred of years. The eggs' decorative motifs are inspired by local folk costumes and houses. In this short documentary "The Egg Painter" by filmmaker Titus-Armand Napirlica, we meet egg painter Elena Craciunescu, who with this art form is able to provide for her family by painting around 500 eggs per year, mostly around Easter.
