10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You


Tonislav Hristov



Tonislav Hristov (b. 1978, Vraca, Bulgaria) moved to Finland in 2001 to shoot his first documentary, Family Fortune (2009), made for Finnish and Bulgarian television. His feature debut Rules of Single Life (2011) found its way into both Finnish and Bulgarian distribution, winning Best Documentary at the Sofia IFF and screening at a variety of other fests (e.g. Jihlava IDFF). Hristov’s next two projects earned him great success and a rich festival career: Soul Food Stories (2013) was selected for the medium-length competition at Amsterdam’s IDFA, while Love and Engineering (2014) screened at New York’s Tribeca and Toronto’s Hot Docs and opened Visions du Réel in Nyon, Switzerland.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
