GEORGI AND THE BUTTERFLIES
Bulgaria, 2004, 60 min, color

Georgi and the Butterflies tells the story of a man and his dream. The man is Dr. Georgi Lulchev, a psychiatrist, neurologist, administrator, amateur chef, entrepreneur and Director of the Home for Psychologically Challenged Men. His dream is to organise a farm in the yard of the home where the patients can raise snails, ostriches and pheasants, and produce silk fibres and soy bread.

This is a story full of optimism, snails, ostriches, silk, charity, soy bread, schizophrenics, foreign investors, Western hunters, misery and compassion.
