BANNED in BULGARIA under accusations of promoting drug use, pornography and homosexuality, the commotion generated by Baklava led to an investigation of the Bulgarian government and a trial against the director and producer Alexo Petrov. But beyond all the internet buzz, political ruckus and conservative outcries, Baklavas real aim is to depict the creepy life and dangerous living conditions of Bulgarian orphans and abandoned children, through the story of two brothers reunited in a hunt for a mysterious buried treasure. Full of dream segments and surrealistic moments, Petrovs confronting film shows the confusion generated by the social transition that the Bulgarian people are going through nowadays and their problematic search for a new identity.
