Or you tell us, basing on what you see in the comedy-filled tragedy and legend, about a non-traditional reprise of the night before Joan’s execution.

prestigious prizeThe Second Death of Joan of Arc was introduced on the international film festival Stage Crossroad in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and it was awarded with a prestigious prize.

Janette, an amateur theater actress, is presented with a choice – “to crawl and live, or to stand straight and die.” On her journey of spiritual change she is becoming “Joan” and her own “creator”. God and the executioner, who support Janette in her crucial change, are also very strange. God turns out to be a poor, pathetic and pacifistic old man who loathes everything there is around. The executioner is very altruistic and humane in his bloody job. This whole flashback of the crucial moment of one, already mythologized death, makes us realize that you have to ripen to be a hero.

Where does a sinless life lead?

Translation: Michal Kotrous

Direction: Svetlana Lazarova

Cast: Otmar Brancuzsky

“I am dead and I feel wonderful!” A play that begins so can’t be boring. A waiting of a dead believer for his Angel who would bring him to God does not lack distinctive aspects of humor. It is a tragicomical contemplation of a man who’d already been nailed in the coffin during his life, having lived dedicated to God, but somehow not having “lived” at all…
P.S. Are you a believer?
We believe you’ll come!

The Magic of Rhodope Mountains

Documentary trilogy / 2010

The vast mountain range of Rhodope in the southern Bulgaria belongs among those places on planet that one may call magical. Since the ancient times to this day, different cultures and religions have been living alongside one another, Orpheus’ songs are sung as well as the current folklore, and prayers addressed to many gods may be whooshing through the air. In this day, when the harmony of co-living has been substantially disturbed, we find the connection to nature, that has never been forgotten in these parts.
It is a picture about the world as perceived by our ancestors and in its original folder. The Magic of Rhodope Mountains is a trilogy about both the “magic” and reality that surrounds it.
