However, overcoming these obstacles, Liliana has become an active and involved actor in society, coordinating a series of successful projects, including “the Voice of Silence.”
On the evening of the 7th of September, the premiere of the second documentary, “Doctors” by Tatiana and Vlaicu Bunduchi brought into focus the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the medical system in the Republic of Moldova.
