A former student at the INSAS (Institut Supérieur des Arts de Bruxelles), Marta Bergman is known for her documentary work, more specifically with and around Rom communities and the women issues in the contemporary society. We owe it to her for films such as Clejani, Heureux Séjour, and Un jour mon prince viendra, which follows the quest of three young Romanian girls for a Western man – and a better life. Her productions were screened in festivals such as Visions du Réel and Leipzig Film Festival.
Herein lie the seedlings for her first fictional piece, Seule à mon mariage/ Alone at My Wedding. Produced by the Belgian company Frakas Productions and shot in Romania and Belgium, the film stars the young Romanian actress Alina Șerban and the Belgian actor Tom Vermeir.
