Official Selection


Kamen Kalev | Bulgaria, Francia | 2020 | 125 min.
O.V. in Bulgarian subtitled in English and Spanish

Full of poetic drive and visually overwhelming, the new film by Bulgarian director Kamen Kalev (part of the Cannes 2020 Official Selection) tells the story of a man's life in three stages. At the age of 8, as he grows up in the countryside and discovers his surroundings At 18, when his sensitive spirit is confronted with the aggressive masculinity of military service. And at 80, when he begins to look death in the face. The river of a life in slow but unceasing flow, pure golden craftwork that mirrors the cinema of Satyajit Ray, Kiarostami or Erice.
