On November 17, at 6:00 p.m., the premiere of the project “Free, more free, Dimitar” – a book and a film about the creator – will be held at the Culture House of the National Theater of Culture. Dimitar Elenov remains a bright figure in Bulgarian art, but as he himself said during his lifetime, he left his heart in Burgas – a city generous to his talent and hospitable to his personality.
In the middle of 2022, a large-scale project to preserve the memory of the creator Dimitar Elenov will begin through the creation of a book and a documentary film. Large-scale because the two products are radically different and at the same time in a symbiosis, which is also part of the originality of the product. More than 50 artists stand in front of the camera and microphone of the director Rozita Elenova and the operators Hristo Dimitrov – Hindo and Plamen Mateev. Thus, their memories are in the book in the form of words – more detailed and in-depth. The second part is in the film, as a vision and as strong an emotion as the screen can convey. And the third part is in the book, where there is a QR code that leads to Youtube to the complete “raw” material of the specific creator – a video without editorial intervention. Thus, the reader/viewer can peek “into the kitchen”, continue his communication with the artists. This is the first such cultural project, the purpose of which is to preserve the memory of the many talented people who built their lives in Bulgarian theater and cinema.
The creators that the audience will meet through the book and the film are Vladimir Penev, Dimitar Rachkov, Svetlana Yancheva, Delyana Hadjiyankova, Yasen Gyuzelev, Asen Blatechki, Stefania Koleva, Prof. Svetoslav Kokalov, Prof. Krasimir Spasov, Prof. Georgi Kapriev, Nikolay Polyakov, Ruth Rafailova, Dimitrina Teneva, Hristo Simeonov, Zlatko Gulekov and many others. The memories include the Burgas and Pazardzhik theaters and names such as: Katya Pascaleva, Georgi Cherkelov, Grisha Ostrovski, Anani Javashev, Vili Tsankov, Konstantin Jidrov, Zhana Stoyanovich, Ilka Zafirova, Ivan Raev, Leon Daniel, Krikor Azarian and others.
The documentary entitled “Free, more free, Dimitar” is a production of the Bulgarian National Television and the “DIMITAR ELENOV Foundation”, with the support of the “Culture” Fund of the Municipality of Burgas.
