Maya Vitkova’s stunning debut feature 'Viktoria', which had its world premiere at Sundance, follows three generations of women in the final years of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria and the transition to democracy. The film focuses on reluctant mother Boryana and her daughter, Viktoria, who in one of the film’s surreal, magical touches is born without an umbilical cord. Though unwanted by her mother, Viktoria is named the country’s Baby of the Decade, and is showered with gifts and attention until the disintegration of the East Bloc. Despite throwing their worlds off balance, the resulting political changes also allow for the possibility of reconciliation.
Vitkova wrote, produced and directed 'Viktoria', making it both personal and universal. Especially impressive is the film’s command of a range of shifting tones, from absurdist humor to political allegory to deeply moving familial drama.
