Europolis, The Town of the Delta

2009 / Bulgaria / 80min

The town of Sulina is situated in the heart of the delta of the Danube. In the past, almost 100 years ago, the town was the third harbour in Europe. Today, Sulina is slowly dying, dreaming about united Europe. What has happened to this strange place, isolated from the world?

In 1933 Eugeniu Botez, a commandant of the harbour of Sulina, wrote a novel. He entitled it "Europolis" and signed it under the name of Jean Bart. A year later he died. In this strange novel Jean Bart prophecies that one day nothing will be left from the town, once full of life. With the death of Europolis Europe will be slowly dying in pains. A few years later his prophecy started to come true...

There isn’t a terrestrial road to Sulina. In order to get to this bizarre place you must travel either by river, or by sea. Nevertheless, Sulina is not an island. Snapping at the land between the many branches of the river, Sulina is simply the Town of the Delta.

Jean Bart claims, in his novel Eurtopolis, that Sulina falls asleep in the middle of the day, and it’s livelier than any other city at night. It was once upon a time… Today after sunset Sulina sleeps a hard, deprived of dreams dream. And only a muffled woman’s laugh from berthed Turkish vessel or a sketchy inebriate song from the Lippovan’s quarter stirs for an instant the night above the delta.
