New film tells about Bulgarian climber Boyan Petrov and his way to the top

The Bulgarian premiere of the film "Here I am, Again" will take place on November 29, in the programme of Cinemania 2021 film festival. The film follows Boyan Petrov's attempt to climb Shishapangma, which turned out to be the last peak in the climber's career. It was there that Boyan disappeared and despite the unprecedented rescue operation in the spring of 2019, he was not found.

The film has already won the Best Research and Adventure Film Award at the 69th edition of the City of Bolzano Golden Gentian Prize in Trento, Italy. It has also been presented at international festivals in Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic, Romania and Denmark. "This film is very special to me. It gives more people the opportunity to get a first-hand impression of who my father was,"said the climber's daughter Teya Petrova.
