 Movie trailer

Synopsis: Corridor #8 is a mosaic film combining fragments from the everyday lives of the characters along a non-existent Balkan road. The road passes through the countries of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania. At the same time Corridor #8 is a huge EU infrastructural project meant to link the Black and the Adriatic Seas, already a decade in the planning.

Boris Despodov Along the way you’ll meet a cowboy train, a railway tunnel used for growing mushrooms, an international businessman building an oil pipeline, a local politician dreaming of becoming the next American president, a pimp working for KFOR soldiers and even a song dedicated to Corridor #8, which seems to be the only real thing in a surreal world.

Director: Boris Despodov
Boris Despodov was born in 1973 in Sofia, Bulgaria and graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia. He began his career as a painter and later he became an author and publisher of the Kamikaze Gazette, a cultural magazine. He creates the posters for his films including the poster of Corridor #8. He is also an award winning animator. Despodov is presently working on Three Sisters and Andrey, a hyper-real painted animation. During the development of Corridor #8 in 2005 he met the Danish filmmaker JOrgen Leth and made a short documentary about him, Schindler’s Lift.
Corridor #8 is his first feature-length film.
