The Beast is still alive

Last Minute Cinema

Mina Mileva, Vesela Kazakova

While leftist ideology conceived by Karl Marx gains popularity around the world, one former socialist block country is torn apart by Communist Party officials and informers. 26 years after the fall of communism, a young Bulgarian woman opens her grandfather’s secret police file to unravel the past and find an answer to an important question why had the socialist idea failed so badly. In a semi-mystic dialogue with her late grandfather, she restores the collective memory of two completely different generations.
