UK Premiere + Q&A with the filmmaker and Morski!
Bulgarian-born Miroslav Morski is an immigrant in London who has dedicated his life to music. After years of searching for direction, at 43 he gets a chance to start a family and finally make it as a musician. His Hackney-based band the Turbans, whose vibrant and melancholy “music from manywhere” reflects its members’ roots in Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Greece, Spain and England, are about to record their debut album. When Morski is asked to write the lyrics and sing the vocals on the bittersweet track “Sinko Moy”, the undertaking becomes an opportunity to make peace with the past and look into the future free of guilt.
