Im Fokus: Families at Risk
De France | Saal1 | Freitag, 24.5.2019 | 22:00 | Tickets

Nach fünfundzwanzig Jahren in Frankreich kehrt die Filmemacherin Bojina Panayotova mit einer Kamera in der Hand zurück in ihre ursprüngliche Heimat Bulgarien. Sie hegt einen schwindelerregenden Verdacht: was wäre, wenn ihre Familie mit dem Geheimdienst des kommunistischen Regimes zusammengearbeitet hätte, und was wäre, wenn sie Teil des „roten Mülls” wären, den die DemonstrantInnen auf der Straße verschwinden sehen wollen? Es beginnt eine Spurensuche in die Vergangenheit, die sich in eine tragisch-komische Odyssee verwandelt. Eine mitreissende Mischung aus Spionage- und Familienfilm.
