Sofia's Last Ambulance Synopsis

Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria, has more than a million inhabitants but only 13 ambulances... Ilian Metev's gritty, multi-award-winning documentary follows two medics and their driver as they struggle to cope with the problems of a society on the brink of social and economic collapse.


Shot in a style that recall's Abbas Kiarostami's 10, with a camera on each of the cockpit's trio, Metev's film refreshingly lacks any sensationalism, political agenda or contrivances. A fly-on-the-dashboard record, this extraordinary, unsentimental 'state-of-the-nation' portrait emerges as a film of universal relevance about a decaying health care system within a society in transition. Filled with humour and camaraderie, it is also a study of three dedicated professionals with a passion for their work and a love of humanity.
