Hohe blaue Gebirge, Flüsse und goldene Ebenen is dedicated to the popculture phenomenon of the Bulgarian Tschalga songs. Somewhere between folk song, disco and house, these hits are especially popular because of their obscene, sometimes pornographic lyrics. They love, they hate – there is nothing in between. The youth of the Tschalga generation quote the lyrics into the camera for Borjana Ventzislavova.
