FILM: WOMEN DO CRY

“Academy Award nominee Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) stars as a young woman with HIV in this feminist critique of modern Bulgarian society. With her life turned upside down, Sonja (Bakalova) turns to her sister Lora (Ralitsa Stoyanova) and the women in her family for support. Each faces her own struggle against the inherent misogyny and homophobia present in all their lives. A rallying cry from acclaimed directing duo Mina Mileva and Vesela Kazakova (Cat in the Wall), this explosive drama took its inspiration from Kazakova’s own family of strong women.”
