Exhibition of Bulgarian folk costumes

For the first time in Canada, we are presenting an exhibition of Bulgarian folk costumes. Bulgarian folk costumes are reflection of Bulgarian history and the diversity of its regions. Each folk costume represents the unique evolution and tradition of a particular region. In this exhibition, you will be able to see several regional costumes and read about their history. The costumes are family treasures that have been passed from generation to generation. Do not miss this exciting and unique exhibition.

Screening of the Bulgarian movie Bubblegum

When: October 9, 18:30
Where: Bytown Cinema, 325 Rideau Str., Ottawa
Admission: Free

Bubblegum movie

“This is a story about the generation that at present is 35-40 years old, a story about childhood in a communist country, about dreams, illusions and today’s reality. It is also a romantic look at a time, when it was possible to live a kind of naughty and crazy, but happy and sincere childhood. As the childhood story takes place in 1988, short before the big political change, we had to look for locations that were less affected by time. At the same time the film contains a contemporary part with a modern look. And as the story is 100 percent urban, we shot in gardens, parks, streets and apartments in Sofia.” Stanislav Todorov-Rogi for FilmNewEurope.com
