Film Comment's Gavin Smith chatted with Writer/Producer Vladislav Todorov and Actor Ruscen Vidinliev about the strange and fascinating Bulgarian film "The Color of the Chameleon."
About the film:
Unfolding in the years before and after the fall of Communism, this black comedy about a rogue secret police informant goes down a rabbit hole into a realm of twisted absurdity. The scenario by Vladislav Todorov, adapting his 2010 novel Zincograph, centers on young misfit Batko Stamenov, who's recruited to infiltrate...a book club. After being dropped for his strange ideas, Batko embarks on his own private investigation and targets the intellectuals of the "Club for New Thinking," hatching a scheme that fully exposes the ludicrous reality of secret policing. With its first film at ND/NF in thirty-five years, Bulgaria is back!
