Sacha Baron Cohen filmed parts of his movie 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' in the poverty stricken town of Glod (translation mud), Romania. The folks in town got paid about $4 for the work. Some claim that they were told that it was a documentary and they're offended by the slanderous dialog. Ionela Carmen is a young women desperate to leave the backwards town for Spain. Foreign lawyers come to town with promises of riches by suing 20th Century Fox and disrupting the Hollywood life of Sacha Baron Cohen.
In many ways, this movie is more damaging for that town than anything in Borat. It shows the town to be full of drunks, greedy thieves, bitter folks and general ugliness. It's also very compelling real life. It's probably missing a couple of scenes. It definitely needs somebody trying to contact Sacha Baron Cohen like Roger & Me style.
