Theodore Ushev’s ‘Blind Vaysha’ (NFB/ARTE) to premiere at The Berlinale

// Business, Featured, News


Continuing an astonishingly prolific streak of new film work following his 20th Century Trilogy as well as last year’s Blood Manifesto and Sonámbulo, Bulgaria-born experimental animator and artist Theodore Ushev‘s latest film Blind Vaysha will have its premiere at this year’s Berlinale – Berlin International Film Festival.

Produced by Marc Bertrand and executive produced by Julie Roy at the National Film Board of Canada in conjunction with ARTE France, Theodore’s latest work is adapted from a short story by Bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov. The story of the film is of Vaysha, a young girl afflicted with the ability to see only the past out of her left eye, the future her right. The narrative is paired with Theodore’s well-established propensity toward visual experimentation and fine arts, drawing on religious paintings and linocuts to create a typically stark and engaging piece of work.

Speaking with Skwigly last year Theodore had this to say about the film:

The only thing I can say is—just watch out. It has many things that I have never done before: technically, artistically and in terms of storytelling. I’ve never been so excited before.

The 66th Berlinale will take place February 11th-21th, 2016. To see more of the work of Theodore Ushev visit ushev.com
