The Good Postman + intro
A poignant and beautifully-shot documentary about a Bulgarian community’s treatment of refugees.
Dir Tonislav Hristov
Standing in the mayoral elections of a dying Bulgarian border town, a postman proposes the radical policy of welcoming ‘refugees,’ with mixed reactions from the locals. Drawing on the events and real-life experience of the cast, this blend of documentary and lavish cinematography delivers a poignant, pertinent and deeply affecting story from the life of a community. The location may be rural Bulgaria, but the story has universal relevance.
