Bulgaria / United States 2016, 17 min, Bulgarian, Hebrew & English subtitles
The residents of Altimir are living a tail-end existence. The abandoned Bulgarian village is one of dozens that are gradually being erased from the map. After the end of Communism, the factories closed, the young people went away, and what do they have left? Disused gravel roads, empty civic buildings, and a few friends to help drown their sorrows in excellent homemade brandy.
