Abstract:

The present paper provides an opportunity to interpret the peculiar projections of Konstantin Pavlov’s poetry of the 1960s in the film Memory, based on the poet’s screenplay from 1985. The study focuses on the problems depicted in the motion picture and the peculiarities of the unconventional style which define both the specific place of the film in the developing trends of Bulgarian feature films of the 1980s, and its complex biography related to the institutional pressure for self-censorship and minimal public response. The observations made in the paper focus on understanding the film as an artistic experiment, achieved through the poetic codes it encrypts.
