Film Summary: "The last few months there has been a lot of talk about the new movie by famous documentarist Adela Peeva "Long Live Bulgaria". The film shows the daily life of a number of Bulgarian youths who belong to far right or neo-fascist groups. We see their gatherings, we see their processions, we see part of their adult mentors and we understand that these groups and movements are much more widespread than we think. The movie has sparked sharp controversy over how to display these phenomena. This article reflects an analytical dispute between four university lecturers about the film, serious questions are raised in it about the context in which young people live and develop in Bulgaria ".
