EASTER DANCE OF THE DEAD

documentary, 24 min, 2012

On the river Danube, on the border between Bulgaria and Romania, sleeps a forgotten village. The young have largely abandoned it in search of better fortunes, condemning the older villagers to lonely and forlorn twilight years.

But once a year, on Easter, it all changes. The young people return and join their grandparents for an ancient rite of remembrance – the Dance of the Dead.
