“Refugees welcome” explores the boundary between patriotism and nationalism, the limit of healthy tolerance and sympathy, the back and the front of Bulgarian identity today. The Bulgarian president calls all Bulgarians to actively participate in a national campaign for attracting refugees to stay in the country as this will ensure the very much needed EU funds. All Bulgarians – men, mothers, hunters, retirees, artists – begun an active propaganda, targeted at the refugees, bypassing the country.
