An exceptional combination of dark comedy and theatre from Ivaylo Hristov. Tallinn Black Night's grand prize winner, set in a rural village in Bulgaria, follows a lone black refugee Bamba (Michael Fleming) greeted at the edge of a forest by Svetla (Svetlana Yancheva) and her shotgun. An exceptional, heart-warming, deeply affecting and funny story ensues as one begins to consider life beyond the small confines and attitudes of the village and what the village represents. Captured in a sharp black and white evocative of The Lighthouse.
