Martin Grahovski

Lecture

Martin Grahowski is a young filmmaker who became interested in documentary video at the age of 16 when he decided to shoot his summer home in Sevlievo to show the city and his people to his friends in Canada. His project in Bulgaria becomes a passion that leads Martin to Asia, Africa and Western Europe in search of inspiring projects. He has worked on interesting and difficult topics such as Nepal’s earthquake recovery, access to health care in India, or deprived farmers of their own land in Southeast Asia. Recently, Martin has focused on sharing Bulgaria and its cultural traditions with a wider international audience, capturing traditional singers, dancers, survakars, and nestinars. The combination of his talent behind the camera and his journalistic background make Martin’s films great visual narratives of very high artistic and documentary value.
