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


Theodore Ushev (1968, Kyustendil, Bulgaria) graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia and began his career as a poster artist in his native country. In 1999 he settled in Montreal, where he quickly acquired a reputation as a prolific and talented animator owing to such films as The Man Who Waited (2006) and Tzaritza (2006). In 2006, he began work on an acclaimed trilogy on the relationship between art and power: Tower Bawher (2006), Drux Flux (2008) and Gloria Victoria (2013). His acclaimed shorts include Lipsett Diaries (2010), his best-known film and a 16-time award winner, Nightingales in December (2011) and Apart (2012).
