Georgi i peperudite / Georgi and the Butterflies

The second movie from this weekend is Georgi i peperudite / Georgi and the Butterflies directed by Andrey Paounov.

It is a documentary movie which somehow breaks off the documentary stereotypes. The plot is based on the story of the head-doctor of a hospital for mentally disabled people. For the last 15 years he is constantly trying to start-up a business which would keep the attention of his patients and at the same time would help to improve the economic situation of the hospital. The business initiatives vary from snail-farm, through silk-production and hunting tourism.

The movie won many prizes among which Silver Wolf at IDFA.

View Georgi and the Butterflies official website and check the trailer (~9Mb).
