A Dream About St. Boris I

Boris I is one of the most iconic and dramatic figures in Bulgarian antiquity. The great pagan khan, and later Christian prince Boris-Mihail, is the ruler who imposes Orthodoxy and the Slavic writing, sometimes with unspeakable violence, sometimes with holiness and goodness, but always forethoughtfully. These two statesmanlike acts merge Bulgarians and Slavs into a single European nation. They make Bulgaria one of the greatest and most powerful nations of their time and prefigure the Golden Age of his son - Simeon. 

"A Dream about St. Boris I" is written in a language inspired by both the original historical sources and contemporary literary Bulgarian, which gives it special and original twang of an ancient chronicle. 

Angel Wagenstein authored scenarios of numerous films produced in Bulgaria and abroad and received prestigious awards at major film festivals. His novels are translated into French, German, English, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Czech, Chinese, Hebrew and other languages. He received the highest appreciation and recognition of his work from the world literature criticism. 

The text "A Dream about St. Boris I" is adapted into a feature film named “Boris I” with the participation of prof. Stefan Danailov in the role of the great Bulgarian ruler.

About the Author
Angel  Wagenstein

Angel Raymond Wagenstein (born October 17, 1922) is a Bulgarian film director and author. Wagenstein was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, but spent his childhood in France where his Sephardic Jewish family emigrated for political reasons due to their leftist politics.

Angel Wagenstein returned to Bulgaria due to an amnesty, and as a student at a lyceum, where he joined an anti-fascist group. For his acts of sabotage, he was arrested and condemned to death in 1944, and it was the invasion of the Soviet Red Army that saved him from execution.

After completing a degree in 1950 in film screenwriting at the S. A. Gerasimov All-Union State Institute for Cinematography in Moscow, he worked as a screenplay writer for the Bulgarian Cinematography Center and for the DEFA Film Studio (the former East Germany Cinematography Center). He is an author of over fifty screenplays for films, documentaries and cartoons. He became famous with his movies about Bulgarian Communists, especially guerrillas.

His film Stars, shot in 1959 by the German director Konrad Wolf, was awarded the Special Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival.

His fiction includes the triptych „Петокнижие Исааково” (Isaac's Torah), „Далеч от Толедо” (Far from Toledo) and „Сбогом, Шанхай” (Farewell, Shanghai), which have been published both separately and together not only in Bulgarian but also in French, German, Russian, English, Czech, Polish, Macedonian, Spanish, Italian and Hebrew. Far from Toledo was awarded in 2002 the Alberto Benveniste annual prize of the Sorbonne, while his novel Farewell Shanghai received the Jean Monnet Prize of European literature in 2004. The French government awarded Angel Wagenstein the high distinction of Chevalier of the French Order of Merit, and later Chevalier of Arts and Literature. He is also the bearer of the highest Bulgarian distinction – the Stara Planina Order. In 2009 he was made honorary citizen of the city of Plovdiv.
