Storyline

Corridor #8 is a mosaic "non-road" film capturing the moods, prejudices and the hope of its characters who live along a non-existent Balkan road, "far away, so close" to each other. The road passes through the countries of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania and is also a huge EU infrastructural project meant to link the Black and the Adriatic Seas, already a decade in the planning.

"A geographic tale" of "life along the Corridor #8 infrastructure project connecting the Adriatic and Black seas, and linking Bulgaria, FYROM, and Albania."
28 February 2008 | by hudsonwaSee all my reviews

Corridor #8 by Boris Despodov, Bulgaria (Documentary - world premiere). "A geographic tale" of "life along the Corridor #8 infrastructure project connecting the Adriatic and Black seas, and linking Bulgaria, FYROM, and Albania.

"A hand on the shoulder, and a knife in the back." Who could resist the charms of a movie that opens with such insightful joy in human failings?

The film traces the observations and opinions of, among others, a gravedigger, a market shopkeeper, a U.S.-born minister without portfolio, a boat guide, an Islamic mystic dervish, and a family imprisoned in their home as a result of a blood-feud.

In the words of the director, a road movie for a road that doesn't exist. The planned, but never built, highway project would have connected populations that have been geographically separated for generations.

"I don't know any Albanians, and I don't want to."

"A pure Bulgarian? I've never met one."

Accompanied by a lusty soundtrack of Balkan music.
