"I was born in a land that was my own and somehow ended up on someone's else's doorstep." "I was born on someone else's land and believed it was mine and my right to keep." Let them take you on their voyage from Iran, Hungary, Algeria, Poland, Chezcoslovakia and Sri Lanka to the UK, let them tell you that we are all equal or not, let them tell you about why they came, why they stayed, their first impressions arriving on British soil, let them be the same as me and you. All seven of them came here for a short visit and didn't mean to stay. I Didn't Mean To Stay a film by Laurentiu Huianu

The film, ‘Living in the Shadow’ by Director Laurentiu Huianu, takes the viewer on a journey over the past years as the community of Colliers Wood struggles to fight against a Goliath. As the ‘Black Tower of Colliers Wood’ (voted London’s most painful eyesore in a BBC poll) casts its shadow over the area and its inhabitants, the community has to come to terms with the fact that there is no simple solution, but refuses to be silent in the face of this monstrosity and its owner, a powerful businessman, over whom even the local council seems to have no power. Huianu says, "This film has been in production for more than two years and gives the viewer a glimpse of how the machinery of power and greed can put a normal community under siege."
Laurentiu Huianu founded FILMS4FUTURE Films in 2010, with a simple goal –
"I want to build a high-quality and modern video production house that could bridge a strong cognitive relationship between our films and the end viewer.
