Best Documentary Central & Eastern Europe Competition – I SEE RED PEOPLE
„Mama mea şi-a dat seama care era situaţia: fusese înregistrată ca agent secret de către acest tip fără să-şi dea seama. Avea până şi un nume de cod!” (Bojina Panayotova, regizoarea)
When the Iron Curtain fell in 1989, Bojina was eight years old. A short time after, her father, an artist, moved with her from Bulgaria to live in Paris. Twenty years later, this young woman returns to Sofia on her own, intent on documenting everything. She senses that there is something unspoken in her family’s past. Why were they always able to travel? Were her parents privileged? Bojina starts to confront them with uncomfortable questions. She learns that her father sold his paintings to members of the secret service. It is enough for Bojina to dig deeper and deeper in her family’s history, analyzing loyalty, post-communist arrogance and the right to one’s own history.
