A Petty Morning Crime
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.
A 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.
