“Love” (Harizanova, 2015)

Bulgaria, 2015, 24 min.

 

Cast: Viktor Ivanov, Katerina Robeva, Nikola Pashov

Plot: Boris arrives in a mountain village to give back the deceived Radko’s belongings to his only living relatives – Radko’s grandmother and grandfather. Todorka doesn’t know about her grandson’s death. While worried about the health condition of Atanas she decides to hide the truth from him.

“88 MHz” (Titova, 2016) 

Bulgaria, 2016, 39 min.

 

Plot: 88 MHz is a short documentary about the “Alma Mater” Radio , theatre journalist Jordan Georgiev, who is hosting the cultural program ” No Masks “every Monday, 5p.m. on 88 MHz. Jordan is interviewing Bulgaria’s most talented theatre actors, directors, playwrights and film makers, truly going into the deepest aspects of their work, bringing unique depths of their art which no other journalist can see. Jordan is sightless. He graduated Sofia University in Law, Journalism and has a M.A. in Literature , cinema and visual art. Two years ago he wrote a book with his most notable interviews he took with famous Bulgarian artists. In this very moment he is writing his second book.

” I have been Jordan’s guest in the radio as an actress. First of all I was surprised how he talks about theatre, actors and plays. There was so much love in his words. I had the feeling he knows me better than I do. He’d read all my previous interviews I’d given, he had watched all the theatre shows I’ve been part of and has seen all my movies. His questions were truly deep, discerning and elegant that I was shocked that there is no sceptre on front of him. How is it possible to remember all the events and dates..? Jordan has a phenomenal memory. And his knowledge of art is phenomenal…and football.
