Djado Ivan

A Film by Silke Meya

Synopsis

The 70 year old “Djado Ivan” lives in Grivitsa, a small bulgarian town close to the
romanian border. In close communion with nature and his many animals, he spends his
life on his small farm and thereby maintains his very own rhythm of life. In order to
portray his life, Silke Meya (Director) and Laura Mentgen (Director of Photography)
spent one month with Ivan in Bulgaria where they were able to capture
his philosophy of life.
