Tsvetanka by Youlian Tobakov
Sofia City Gallery has an exhibition and film showing of "Tsvetanka" by Youlian Tobakov – simple, very moving and with English language subtitles.
When the film premiered last October, Tobakov explained: “Born in a wealthy family Tzvetanka passionately dreamed of becoming an actress, but the history of her country completely changed her destiny.
“The 20th century was historically unique for Bulgaria, which survived the change of three epochs: monarchy, communist regime, and democracy…
“Tzvetanka is the story of my grandmother, a woman who has outlived the three epochs. Her life represents and reflects the stories of many others, of society and of the country itself."
Show times are 11:30 and 15:30 from Monday – Saturday, 14.00 and 16.00 on Sunday.
