Best of Bulgaria
Like Zagreb, the Sofia Animation Studio has carved its own unique niche with an original graphic style, quirky storytelling, and dark comedy. The studio’s films have won countless awards and prizes, and its biannual World Animation Film Festival in Varna solidified Bulgaria as an international animation center. Rembrandt Films is offering these films, all of which are appropriate for children, on video for the first time.
Dreams at the Airport
Two episodes in the wild 12-part series by the Sofia Animation Studio’s Pencho Kunchev, featuring a mischievous baby who embarks on death-defying adventures in the world of adults. Anything goes as one image morphs into another, with the baby always emerging miraculously unscathed.
Three Fools Series
Sofia’s most comical creation, these well-meaning blockheads are equal parts Laurel & Hardy, Three Stooges, and Dumb and Dumber. Here is a selection from their zaniest exploits.
This film turns the classic western on its head as a boy watching television enters the action. Directed by comic master Proiko Proikov, it features the song, The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels.
