The Longest Shadow
POV Season 5
Feature Film | 07/05/1992

On Easter morning, 1951, seven years after the fall of Bulgaria to Communist rule, thousands of men disappeared. Among them were both of Kalina Ivanov’s grandfathers. The Longest Shadow is a lyrical and personal account of Ivanov’s attempts to document the recent tentative steps toward democracy of the country she once fled, and to uncover the long-suppressed facts behind her grandfathers’ arrests.
