The event is the second of the master classes series in the film initiative, part of the program of Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture 2019, CINEPLOVDIV

The second event of the master classes series in the project CINEPLOVDIV is taking place on March 24 (Saturday), 4:30 PM, at Club Fargo, Plovdiv. The topic was "How to show the invisible in the cinema?" presented by the young director Dimitar Kutmanov, born in Plovdiv. At the event, Dimitar talked to the guests of the event about how the language of the cinema displays ideas, beliefs, feelings, scents, time and other things that can't be captured on screen. During the lecture-discussion, the director used his graduation film at the Edinburgh Film Academy, ECCE HOMO, winner of the Golden Rose Festival Award for Best Short Film 2015, as well as selected and nominated at numerous international festivals, for example and analysis.

CINEPLOVDIV is part of the program Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture 2019.

More about “ЕCCE HOMO”

United Kingdom-Romania-Bulgaria, 2014, 30 min

In a forsaken by God place, Ada and her ill mother live in loneliness and poverty. Their humble life passes slowly, like a silent ritual, though under the quiet surface lurk the grief and fear of the inevitable. Ada sinks into a spiritual crisis of doubt and despair, the light in her is about to fade away. Dream, sacrament, death ... or perhaps - a miracle.
