    This timely immigrants’ eye view of the UK certainly feels like a story which needed to be told.

    After facing the public prosecutor in Bulgaria over alleged controversy surrounding our first feature documentary “Uncle Tony, Three Fools and the Secret Service” I’ve realised that cinema with all its magic and impact on the senses could actually create a splash in certain dreamy societies.

    Mina Mileva directed animated shorts and did a lot of commercial work in the British animation industry. In recent years together with Vesela Kazakova they produced and directed political documentaries that stirred national controversy and gained them the nickname “The Demonic Duo”. CAT IN THE WALL (2019) is their first fiction film opening at Locarno’s international competition in 2019 and listed as number one among 11 breakthrough films from summer festivals by Screen International.
