After 25 yearsin France, Bojina returns to Bulgaria, camera in hand, with a vertiginous suspicion: what if her family hadcollaborated with the political police of the communist regime? And what if they were part of the "red trash" that the demonstrators on the street want to see disappear? She decides to investigate and to film, constantly, ready for anything.

This debut feature documentary by the Bulgarian-born French filmmaker Bojina Panayotova premiered in the Panorama section at the 68th Berlin Film Festival, I See Red People is an impressive and entertaining journey into one family's and Bulgaria’s recent history.
