THE GOOD POSTMAN
by Tonislav Hristov, Bulgaria 2016, 82’.
A small and stubborn Bulgarian village, facing the Turkish border, has been resisting foreign invaders since the times of the Roman Empire. Now its electorate of 38 elderly townspeople is deciding the future of Europe. The Great Dervent, as the village has been called for centuries because of its location on the doorsteps of the former Ottoman Empire, has found itself in the middle of the European crisis as asylum seekers sneak across the border causing fear and unrest. Once again the sleepy and forgotten village has become the most important secret loophole of Europe. Postman Ivan has a new political vision. He decides to run for mayor to bring the dying village to life by welcoming refugees.
