Please Hold the Line

Cables, cables and more cables. The construction of telephone and internet connections in the most remote villages of Eastern Europe is not proceeding smoothly. Please Hold the Line is a hilarious film that illuminates the leap from an almost medieval society into the 21st century. In deadpan style, filmmaker Pavel Cuzuioc shows what the technological revolution looks like on the ground. The contrast between the old and new worlds becomes painfully clear when the cable-laying crew arrives in remote villages where orthodox priests rule the roost. How much of the old village structure will remain intact once the internet is finally installed?
