The film tells a story of a dance teacher Lina appointed to substitute for a year for a literature teacher in an elite high school in Sofia. Despite the lack of experience and thanks to her dancing talent, Lina manages to overcome the initial distrust of the students and the hostility of her most conservative colleagues.

 

Directed by / Redateljica: Michaela Komitova
Screenwriter /Scenarist: Nikolay Kolev
DoP / Direktor fotografije: Emil Topuzov, Kurbana Saida
Music by / Glazba: Svilen Nachev, Ventsislav Lalev
Cast / Glume: Yana Marinova, Bashar Rahal, Nikolay Sotirov

Riječ je o bugarskom filmu, trgikomediji, iz 2015. godine redateljice Mihaele Komitove prema scenariju Nikolaya Koleva.
Radnja prati priču Line, bivše natjecateljice u sportskim plesovima, koja prihvaća izazov i postaje profesorica književnosti u jednoj elitnoj sofijskoj gimnaziji. Na prvu, Lina ima sve što je potrebno kako bi se uhvatila u koštac
s poslom – obrazovanje, urođenu dobrotu i natjecateljsku borbenost. No, pokazalo se da su učenici, kojima bi trebala biti razrednica, razmažena djeca bogataša koje je nemoguće kontrolirati i kojima nisu strane droge, alkohol, samoživost, buntovnički duh i bahatost.
Zanimljivo je da je scenarist filma, Nikolay Kolev, na scenariju radio čitave dvije godine, a oslanjao se na svoje vlastito iskustvo profesora.
U glavnim su ulogama: Yana Marinova, Ralitsa Paskaleva, Niki Sotirov, Bashar Rahal, Boyka Belkova

ANKA - feature film

„Anka“ is a timeless children’s fairy tale, set in the bucolic countryside of central Europe at the turn of the 20th Century. It is a story about the quest for love and acceptance, revealed through the adventures of Anka, an orphan girl who bravely sets off in pursuit of a home, facing life’s hardships, and finding her place through the help of a magical world and its mysterious forest creatures. Running away from her evil custodian, Anka finds what she is looking for in the most improbable of places – a brick making factory, and in the most improbable of men – the “Brazilian”, a rebellious and free-spirited factory worker whose damaged adulthood, torn by temptation and a traumatic past stands in harsh contrast to the pure, hopeful childhood of Anka. Their fates will interwine, as they embark on an emotional, adventure-packed journey that will bring them to the realization that, as a family, they can offer each other the companionship and care fate has deprived them both of.

Dječja bajka, smještena u srednjoj Europi početkom prošloga stoljeća, ANKA je priča o djevojčici iz sirotišta koju posvaja bogata rođakinja. Nedugo nakon Ankina dolaska otmjena rođakinja pokazuje drugo lice te razočarana i utučena Anka bježi, želeći se vratiti u sirotište. Put je dovodi do ciglane okružene visokim stablima i neobičnom prirodom. Grubih lica i velikoga srca, ciglari joj daju novi
privremeni dom, daju joj sobu buntovnoga ciglara Brazilijanca, siročeta poput nje, koji je završio tu noć u zatvoru zbog kavge koju je započeo u seoskoj krčmi. U ciglani u dubini šume, s ovozemaljskim životom isprepliće se začudni, bajkoviti, svijet šumskih bića, koja vide samo djeca bujne mašte…

Pakis (Gita Novalista) is a young girl from a fishing community of the Bajau people in Wakatobi, Sulawesi, part of the Coral Triangle. She lives with her mother, Tayung (Atiqah Hasiholan). As Pakis’ father has been lost at sea, Tayung works hard to support her daughter. Pakis, however, is determined to search for her father, a quest which brings the two into conflict. Pakis regularly visits a local shaman, who conducts a ritual allowing Pakis to search for her father in a mirror’s surface. The ritual never shows Pakis his location but she remains determined to keep trying. Meanwhile, Tudo (Reza Rahadian) has broken up with his fiancée. Struggling to cope with the loss, he takes a new job in Wakatobi studying dolphins. There he becomes involved with the Bajau community, staying at Tayung’s home. Eventually Pakis is able to realise that her father is dead and continues with her life.

MIRROR NEVER LIES  - INDONEZIA

Pakis (Gita Novalista) je mlada djevojka iz ribarske zajednice naroda Bajau u Wakatobi, Sulawesi, dijelu Koraljnog Trokuta, koja živi sa svojom majkom, Tayung (Atiqah Hasiholan). S obzirom da je Pakisin otac nestao na moru, Tayung radi vrlo marljivo da bi uzdržavala kćer. Pakis je posvećena tome da pronađe oca, što ju dovodi u sukob sa majkom. Pakis redovito posjećuje lokalnog šamana, koji vrši rituale koji omogućavaju Pakis da traži oca na površini ogledala. Ritual nikada Pakis ne pokaže njegovu lokaciju, ali ona ostaje ustrajna u tome da ga nastavi tražiti. U međuvremenu, Tudo (Reza Rahadian) je prekinuo sa svojom zaručnicom. Boreći se sa gubitkom, prihvaća novi posao u Wakatobiju proučavajući dupine. Tamo se poveže sa zajednicom Bajau te živi u Tayunginom domu. Naposljetku Pakis konačno shvaća da joj je otac mrtav i nastavlja sa svojim životom.
