GIANT MOSQUITOS AND NUCLEAR ENERGY IN THE DOCUMENTARY OF THE MONTH

The Bulgarian documentary 'The Mosquito problem and other stories', by filmmaker Andrey Paounov, will be shown on next Friday, 6 March, at 20:15 hours at the University Venue in Alicante City. The film, included in the series Documentary of the Month, will be screened in original version with Catalan subtitles.

'The mosquito problem and other stories' talks about the change in the lives of the inhabitants of a small village, their dreams and hopes for economic prosperity because the construction of a nuclear power station has been announced. Concerned only about some giant mosquitos, the citizens celebrate the atomic arrival by engraving the power station's logo in buildings and soup bowls.

In the middle of the apparent prosperity brought by the atomic energy, there is a past nobody wants to remember, a territory full of terrifying secrets, horrible crime stories that dominate the city the same way the dark clouds formed by the mosquitos do when they are going down to the village.

The documentary has won, among other awards, the first jury award in the category of Documentary Creation of the Festival Documenta Madrid (2008) or the Gran Premio in the festival Sunny Side of the Doc (2008). Free entrance limited to seating capacity.
