Closing Night for the 18th Annual South East European Film Festival, took place on Wednesday, May 3rd, at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA. The evening began with the world premiere of a new documentary from Ukraine, “KING LEAR: How We Looked for Love During the War,” by Dmytro Hreshko. Taking a step back from the frontlines, the film focuses on internally displaced people in a small town who are transformed into Shakespeare’s characters, which in turn gives new meaning and purpose to their shattered lives. This year’s SEEfest Resident Producer, Polina Herman, who is also the producer of the film, attended the screening for a Q&A with Vera Mijojlic, Festival Director.
Prior to the screening, this year’s awards were announced (see the full list below). Irina Maleeva (star of Peacock’s Paul T Goldman, Six Feet Under, and The Gilmore Girls), SeeFest’s Honorary Chairwoman, accepted the MOZAIK Bridging the Borders Award for THE GOOD DRIVER on behalf of director Tonislav Hristov, a Bulgarian filmmaker who works in Finland and Bulgaria. The film is a Finnish-Swedish-Bulgarian production.
