ANGEL WAGENSTEIN: ART IS A WEAPON

Multilayered portrait of Jewish Bulgarian screenwriter and novelist Angel Wagenstein ("Stars," "Eolomea"), an idealistic communist still dreaming of a better world at 95. During World War II, Angel Wagenstein fought in the antifascist resistance, was captured and sentenced to death, survived, and later studied at the Gerasimov Institute for Cinematography in Moscow. After the 1989 transition, he entered politics, aiming to establish democratic socialism in Bulgaria, a plan foiled by the emergence of neoliberalism.
