Ahead of its release next month, a trailer, poster and images has been released for the Bulgarian mystery thriller January.
Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Andrey Paounov as his narrative feature debut, the film centres on five men, stuck in limbo between life and death, the know and the unknown, as they try to resolve the mystery that slowly devours them.
In the midst of nowhere, five men are stuck in a snowstorm. One has to cross the Woods to reach town, but that’s insane in the midst of winter: the road is snowed over, you can get lost and freeze, the wolves are hungry and can be heard howling all night long, and who knows what other creatures roam these woods…? Still, early that morning, Petar Motorov must have harnessed his sleigh and headed to town. Nobody saw him leave, but the falling snow still hasn’t fully erased his tracks. But when the sleigh returns, Petar Motorov isn’t on it. Inside the men find only Motorov’s fur coat, his shotgun, and the frozen carcass of a wolf. Where is Petar Motorov, and what has happened to him? There’s only one way to find out…
The film stars Samuel Finci, Iossif Sarchadhiev, Zachary Baharov, Svetoslav Stoyanov, Leonid Yovchev, Borislav Chouchkov, Malin Krastev, Stanimir Lazarov, and Lachezar Lazarov.
January arrives in cinemas and On Demand on January 27th.
