Excursion to the Bridge of Friendship

Australia, 1993 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Christina Andreef

Mysterious-voiced folk-singer Nadezhda Ivanova is big in Bulgaria but, at least until this vibrant, hilarious film, unknown in Australia.

She writes to Maria, inner-urban sophisti­cate and total stranger, in an attempt to set up a Sydney gig for her ancient tradition of song. An all-singing, no-talking, some-dancing, Slav­ic sing-fest, with playful intertitles (in English and Bulgarian).
