➀ FOOD, DOCU & STORIES

◔ 18:00 - 20:00 | FOOD | DOCU | ACOUSTIC CONCERTS

The festival starts with a combination of Bulgarian cuisine delicacies (served by Sisi Food) and documentaries alternated with the live music of Trio Pletenitsa. Charlotte Moyersoen, young millennial graduated at the Gent university in Slavic studies with a natural born affection for and built-up knowledge about the Balkan region, sheds a new light on long forgotten spots and events: the Tyrant’s pyramid in Tirana, capital of Albania, a magnificent architectural masterpiece of brutalism called the UFO in Bulgaria, and finally Tito’s ‘last folly’, the 1981 megalomaniac Soviet ‘Monument to the uprising of the people of Kordun and Banija’ (sic) in Croatia.
