    A whisper-light family roundelay of carefully constructed visuals that convey a sense of absence on the cusp of optimism.

    Jay Weissberg, Variety

    A sincere and touching family study.

    My background is in classical violin, but it is within film that my interest in people and my musical sensibility converge.

    Ilian was born in Bulgaria in 1981. As a teenager in Germany, he pursued a career as a violinist and has performed on German classical radio. After studying Fine Art at Saint Martins, where he experimented with 16mm film, he completed his training at the UK National Film and Television School in 2008. Since then, he is obsessed with finding new challenges using the medium of film and pushing film language. Ilian has directed, photographed and co-produced GOLESHOVO and SOFIA’S LAST AMBULANCE. His latest feature, 3/4 was selected at Locarno Festival where it was awarded the Golden Leopard in the Filmmakers of the Present section.
