Today and tomorrow the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in London organizes "Celebrating Christo" - an event aimed at promoting Bulgarian culture in the UK within the framework of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Two documentaries will be shown at the event. The one titled "Limit of Dreams", directed by Georgi Balabanov, is dedicated to brothers Anani and Hristo Yavashev. Anani Yavashev stayed in Bulgaria as an actor, while Hristo went to the West to become one of the most famous representatives of contemporary art.

The other film is "Bridge to Christo" by Evgenia Atanasova-Teneva, dedicated to Christo's floating piers in the Italian lake Iseo. This summer, Christo plans to open his first sizable open-air work in London’s Hyde Park. This will be a massive trapezoidal floating structure of stacked colored barrels.
