Bulgarian Films in Cannes:

THE PETROV FILE by Gueorgui Balabanov

Bulgaria/Germany, 2013, 100 min

During the last years of the communist regime in Bulgaria, stage actorAlexandre Petrov is banned from being on stage without any apparentmotives. When he reappears, after the demise of the regime, he discovers that he had been denounced by the man, he admired most, his master and friend.

He discovers about those facts at the very moment that he has to deliver a
funeral speech in the honor of this man. Devastated, Petrov declares that he is giving up his public life. This is when Markov, an old acquaintance but also a former director of the Secret Services, turned into a successful businessman, offers his help. In those years `94-`95, the country is whirling into wild capitalism, dreadful violence and gang wars. Markov, an admirer of Petrov’s stage talents, offers him to become the head figure of a new political party aiming at rescuing a torn apart country. Petrov is unsure but then accepts.

The film tells this adventure where the illusions of the stage collidewith political aspirations, where masked characters are confronting othermasks, where friendships are staged and revenges are carried secretly. In this act, the omnipotent Markov, a typical manipulator as well as Petrov,a dreamed actor, will lose their lives as our fable tells that sooner orlate, you are trapped by the very same trap you have laid. The story ends when Alexandra, Petrov’s only daughter, is offered this poisonous legacy.

THE LAST BLACK SEA PIRATES by Svetoslav Stoyanov

Bulgaria, 2013, 75 min

The Last Black Sea Pirates swim in testosterone and rugged tenderness in a land of wilderness and legends, far from civilization.

For 20 years, Captain Jack The Whale and his crew have been drinking, dreaming and hunting for a treasure buried in the gully of Karadere, the pristine beach they call home. But someone else has got wind of Karadere’s treasures. When news of imminent change begins to find its way to this remote oasis, the pirates' world begins to unravel. Doubts erode the foundations of trust, conflicts brew and tensions are on the rise.

In this crisis, emerges a contemporary fairy tale about the treasures we hunt and those that we find.
