За самоубийството
ON SUICIDE
Bulgaria, 2005, 90 min, color

What is that supernatura force capable of setting us against our own nature?... How can freedom be "freed" from itself? How is it possible to say "No" to the greatest "Yes" - life?... What is suicide a symptom of?... How is suicide possible at all? Although it has always been a cause of metaphysical terror, suicide as a phenomenon has never been closely studied. It has always been surrounded by fears and enigma. This film peers into the profundities.
