He Who Travels Alone

Който tръгнал e cам
Director: Ralitza Dimitrova

Bulgaria, Documentary, 2012, 74 min, bulgarian with english and lithuanian subtitles, V

This documentary film tells the story of a family of four, living in selfimposed exile within the conservative and often conformist Bulgarian society.  They live outside the standard – the children do not go to school and the parents do not have a steady job. This family is different - they despise the onus of materialism, resist the terror of consumerism and ignore the mantra “everybody's doing it!”. They have chosen to live outside social norms.
