A vision roams the cobblestones of Old Plovdiv… It comes to life in people’s memories… As the old belief has it: for a building to be strong, the shadow of a living person must be built into the stones… This is a film about Nacho Kulturata [The Culture], the man who created the picturesque Old Town, building his life into his fulfilled dream—founding the most beautiful place in the world and imbuing it with spirituality and creative fervour.

STANISLAVA KALCHEVA is the director of over thirty documentaries, and the screenwriter of twelve of them. ‘Offline?’ won awards at Academica 21 and the 2017 Golden Rhyton; ‘The Dead Open the Eyes of the Living’: Certificate of Honour at the 2014 Golden Rhyton Festival; ‘Achilles’ Heel’, Special Award of the jury, 2010 Golden Rhyton Festival; ‘One Bulgarian Voice in Europe’, the award of the French Cultural Center, in 2006.
