A night in Sofia. While the whole country is getting ready to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Communist regime in Bulgaria, three police patrols are cruising the streets of the slumbering city. They encounter absurd situations and colorful characters who, with a pinch of black humor, reflect the paradoxes of a society in transition that is still searching for its identity. Rounds is the second part of Komandarev’s trilogy about the crisis of the modern Bulgarian and European societies. Its first part, Directions, premiered at Cannes Film Festival.

Stephan Komandarev (1966) is a Bulgarian director, producer and screenwriter. He obtained his degree in Film and TV Directing from New Bulgarian University. He is a member of the European Film Academy. His documentary and feature films have won numerous awards worldwide. Some of them are: Directions (2017), The World Is Big and Salvation Lurks Around the Corner (2008), The Judgement (2014), Occupation 1968 (2014), Alphabet of Hope (2003)
