Synopsis: 

Village People is an intimate and philosophical portrait of small villages in north-western Bulgaria – the poorest region in the European Union. This mosaic film offers us a slice of life from rural Bulgaria through the confessions of the little people about not so little things – cows, life, faith, death, the benefits of dogs and mice, the need for blonde waitresses, Jean-Paul Sartre and existentialism, river fishing, old fortune tellers and the wind.

Bio Director: 

Tzvetan Dragnev is a Bulgarian director. He graduated from the Film and Video Faculty of York University Toronto in June 2001. He worked as an editor and camera operator in many short and feature-length documentaries in Bulgaria and Canada. He takes on the role of director for the first time in Village People.
