NESTINARS.FIRES OF DEVOTION
Bulgaria, 2005, 57 min, color

In a godforsaken village of Bulgary (Bulgaria) a miracle is hidden. It is not one of those miracles you can witness, touch or shoot on tape whenever it pleases you. It happens once a year, every year. Clothing of icons, opening of a sacred spring, sacrifice – all these are done on the day of St. Konstantin – June 3. On this day earth and heaven mingle into a single point – the fire on which the Nestinary are dancing. They dance bare-footed on the glowing embers to the accompaniment of bagpipes and drums and foretelling
the future.
