VARNA: Egle Vertelyte’s debut film Miracle will screen in the main competition of the 36th Golden Rose National Film Festival (27 September - 4 October 2018). The film is a Lithuanian/Bulgarian/Polish coproduction shot by the eminent Bulgarian DoP Emil Christov.

Vertelyte wrote the script. It is a story about the tragicomic experience of middle aged Irena, who used to lead the “October Revolution” pig farm in the ex-Soviet union for fifteen years. The collapse of communism, her husband’s alcoholism and the depressing picture of dying pigs deeply confuses her. A sudden love affair with an American businessman blows up her life and turns her into a believer in God.

Miracle is a tragicomic drama with strange and a bit exaggerated characters and quite an extraordinary plot. That's why the story also feels satirical or like a farce,” Vertelyte said.


The film was produced by Luthuania’s InScript in coproduction with Bulgaria’s Geopoly and Poland’s Orka Postproduction studio. The project budgeted at nearly 780,000 EUR was supported by the Lithuanian Film Center, the Bulgarian National Film Center, the Polish Film Institute, Eurimages and Creative Europe – MEDIA.

The famous Polish actor Daniel Olbrychski plays a Catholic priest in the film. The cast includes Egle Mikulionyte, Andrius Bialobzeskis and US based Vyto Ruginis. The shooting took place in several small Lithuanian settlements during the winter of 2016. The interiors were shot on set in April 2016 in Sofia.

Vertelyte is an alumna of Denmark’s European Film College. Her feature length documentary UB Lama, which she filmed in Mongolia in 2009, was selected by more than 20 international film festivals and received six international awards.

France’s Wide is handling the sales.
