It is 1971. Bulgaria is under Communist regime, when any religious expression or music from the West is a national threat and when radio stations like BBC, Deutsche Welle, or Radio Free Europe are muffled and prohibited... Based on a true story, Radiogram follows a father who walks almost 100 kilometres to the nearest town, so he can buy a new radio for his rock’n’roll obsessed son. This feel good drama about identity, the power of music, and freedom is set in the Rodopi Mountains, the heart of Bulgaria, predominantly populated by the Pomak (local Muslim) community. Radiogram is a film for anyone who is passionate about true stories, and rock ‘n roll, the communist era of Eastern Europe, and brings a new meaning to “music is freedom.”
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
