Angel Wagenstein: Art is a weapon

The US Embassy invites you to a free screening of the documentary Angel Wagenstein: Art is a Weapon dedicated to the great Bulgarian writer and cinematographer Angel Wagenstein.

The film has been shown at six festivals so far and has won the audience award at the South East European Film Festival in Los Angeles in early 2017.

After the screening, the audience will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion with Mr. Wagenstein and the director of the film, Andrea Simon.
