( Bulgaria, 2023), directors: Antoaneta Bachurova, Vladimir Lytskanov, 78 minutes
A family story with a dramatic plot, covering important historical events whose outcome loudly echoes in the New millennium. The destiny of Prof. Dimitаr Atanasoff– educated in the USA and a significant contributor to world science – and of his multinational family, devoted to the development of post-war Bulgaria, is a mirror for the destinies of hundreds of people representing Bulgarian social elite. Instead of being able to apply their potential, all of them, educated and experienced, were wiped out – victims of the ignorance of the Communist coup d’etat on September 9th 1944.
Unfortunately, their names and deeds have been lost once again after the fall of the Berlin wall, swept away by the oblivion imposed by the communist legacy and society’s complacency.
