Bulgaria/Sweden, 2012, Colour, 66 min
In his opulent, playful and sometimes serene debut film, Youlian Tabakov tells the chequered life story of a Bulgarian woman who survived three political regimes: monarchy, socialism and the present day. The director profits from having studied costume and design, which inspired him to interweave the documentary material with animated and staged sequences to produce a stream of imaginative and surprising images.
