Director Bio

Ilian Metev

Ilian was born in Sofia, Bulgaria (1981), and spent part of his childhood in Germany. His first feature, Sofia’s Last Ambulance (2012) premiered at the Critics’ Week at Cannes Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Camera d’Or and won the Visionary Award. Ilian’s work has been shown at the New York MOMA and has received over 40 awards.

Body

Teenage Mila (Mila Mihova) is a gifted pianist preparing for an important audition. She must contend with her attention-seeking younger brother Niki (Nikolay Mashalov) and her caring but distracted astrophysicist father. Each is immersed in their own world, yet their togetherness sustains in spite of their distance from each other. Ilian Metev has crafted a gentle, sincere study of a fragmented family that emanates truthfulness and genuine humanity. Featuring distinctive cinematography and brilliant performances from its largely unprofessional cast.
