The movie Vasil will represent Bulgaria at the European Cinema Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, which will be held between November 17 and 26. The first Spanish-Bulgarian production, starring actor Ivan Barnev as lead character, is a “modern tale about kindness and stereotypes”, said the Bulgarian Embassy in Mexico on its Facebook page on Thursday. 

The film was inspired by real events where the director one day learned her eccentric father was housing a Bulgarian migrant without documents in his home. That stirred trouble in the family as no one had heard of Bulgaria before then.  

In the film, Vasil (Ivan Barnev) is a fist-class chess player living in the streets of Valencia. Alfredo (Karra Elejalde) is also passionate about chess so he welcomes Vasil in his home, much to the astonishment of his daughter Luisa (Alexandra Jimenez). Despite their many differences, Alfredo soon realizes that Vasil has forever changed his life.
