Director: Paula Milenkova
Bio: If you catch yourself savoring the small, precious moments of your day, you have a lot in common with Paula Milenkova.
Raised in South Florida and often working in Los Angeles, she’s a documentary filmmaker finding inspiration from coast to coast.
Arguably though, the human experiences which compel her most know no boundaries, allowing her to share personal vignettes of her family that feel universal.

Film: Set in Bulgaria, life is simple yet hard. But consider the little joys you can find in the human experience: acts of self-care and self-love. This is where laundry comes in and you’ll notice its ritual everywhere in Bulgaria, on every balcony. Such rituals are a testament of a life being lived, no matter how long our days may feel.
