Baba Penka lives in Seattle where she watches after her grandkids. Her singing is contagious and so is her smile!
Sponsored by the Bulgarian Cultural and Heritage Center of Seattle, "This Baba" is produced by Mary Sherhart who approached me to direct. I'm so grateful for this experience as it re-kindled my connection to Bulgaria. Not to mention that every time we filmed we were welcomed with open arms by the women in the film who always had a table full of traditional Bulgarian food waiting for us.
The documentary is set to premier in May of 2014.
