Botev is an Idiot

Botev is an Idiot

film-roll Bulgaria / Color / 9' / 2012

Vasko has written an essay that offends and questions the mythological image of Hristo Botev, who is widely considered by Bulgarians to be a symbolic historical figure and national hero. When the director of the school herself interrogates him in front of the whole class, he reveals that what he meant to say was something entirely different.
