Cast & Crew
“City of Dreams” is the story of Dimitrovgrad, a model town named after Stalin’s friend and Bulgarian communist state founder Georgi Dimitrov, and built with the sweat and blood of thousands of young brigade volunteers immediately after WWII. An old regime pioneer and his democratic activist son confront each other, a ‘chalga’ pop-folk starlet and her ex-rocker-turned-producer hope for a breakthrough… Past and present Bulgaria collide: transition and future, nostalgia and luxury coexist in the parallel worlds of yesterday and today. This is not a perestroika cliché, it lives and breathes as we speak!
