The cars we drove into capitalism

(Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic, 2021), directed by Boris Missirkov, Georgi Bogdanov, 93 minutes

An unforgettable collection of characters from all around Europe, stuck between their past and future, for whom their old sotz cars are the most important members of their family – their true favorites, which give them meaning and hope. From the love story of a young couple who met thanks to their love for cars, through inheritance of the one and only car companiоn of the last sexton in a small village, through a girl inspired by pin-up modeling, to the fate-changing political moment for them – when you have to abandon your beloved car to jump through the border to the “free” world.  A cinematic journey, made with ultimate attention to its heroes. They love the feeling of freedom, which the growling of their clumsy automobiles gives them. Their journey back and forth the past and the future raises the question of identity and collective memory of some 500 million Europeans today.
