THE NEXT GENERATION
2019, 88’, documentary debut
The documentary tells the stories of the heroic people who rescued Bulgaria’s Jews in WW2 and gave a chance to the next generations. This is not a historical movie, but rather the emotional stories of descendants of the survivors looking for their forgotten family roots and their Bulgarian saviours.
