I hope the future will bring us more books featuring the work of lesser known but nevertheless remarkable Balkan stylists, many of whom currently remain virtually unknown beyond the circle of highly specialized film critics and festival programmers, like Bulgarian filmmaker Rangel Vulchanov and Binka Zhelyazkova, Romanian Mirecea Veroiu, Greek Nikos Kounduros, and Montenegrin Zivko Nikolic.
