Synopsis


With the shade around her waist / she dreams on her balcony, […] Under the gypsy moon, / all things are watching her / and she cannot see them. A surrealist journey through colours and shapes inspired by the poem Romance Sonámbuloby Federico García Lorca. Visual poetry in the rhythm of fantastic dreams and passionate nights.

Theodore Ushev


Born in Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Theodore Ushev first made a name for himself as a poster artist in his native country before settling in Montreal in 1999. In Montreal, Ushev worked in the multimedia industry and then found fruitful creative soil at the National Film Board of Canada, where he has made more than 10 films to date, including Lipsett Diaries (2010), about the tortured life and art of the acclaimed experimental filmmaker, and the Academy Award-nominated short Blind Vaysha (2016). Ushev’s films have won more than 150 awards and mentions and have screened in many retrospectives.
