The film is one of six pieces that constitute the first issue of MARK & VERSE project, initiated and conducted by Vessela Dantcheva at Compote Collective. The project is consisted of six animated short films based on original poems by Bulgarian writers.
Petty Morning Crime is a poem by Georgi Gospodinov. Originally it is written in Bulgarian language and subsequently a translation in English is made. I decided to leave the voice over in Bulgarian and to incorporate the necessary English "subtitles" in the picture itself. I wanted to avoid the unpleasant distraction from the imagery that usually comes with the subtitles, and at the same time to convey the written material.
