Documentary film Sofia’s Last Ambulance, directed by Bulgarian Ilian Metev and co-produced by Croatian company Nukleus film, was selected for the 51st International Critics’ Week programme, taking place at the Cannes International Film Festival from 17-25 May, reports Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC).
Sofia's Last Ambulance is a documentary film about the adventures of a doctor, a nurse and an EMS driver in Sofia. In the Bulgarian capital these people are trying to save lives, struggling at the same time with nonsense in a decaying health system. The film was co-funded by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, Bulgarian Film Fund, Film- und Medienstiftung NRW (Germany) and Impact Partners (USA), with the assistance of ARTE and WDR channels.
The International Critics’ Week is a parallel section of the Cannes International Film Festival, dedicated to the discovery of new talents and hosting around twenty film-makers each year. Since its establishment in 1961, the main goal of the Critics’ Week has been to present debut and other films by directors from all four corners of the world.
