Macedonia Press Review – September 14, 2012

Bulgarian journalists rush to Macedonian Manaki Film Festival; Macedonia at a brink of recession

Skopje

DNEVNIK
This year there is an enormous interest among Bulgarian journalists for the start of the 33rd Edition of the International Cinematographers festival, Manaki Brothers, which takes place in Bitola from September 15-21. The reason is the premiere of the Macedonian film, “The Third Half” that portrays scenes of Bulgarian military collaboration with Nazi Germany during the transport of Macedonian Jews in the notorious Nazi death camps. The move has been a top story in Bulgarian media ever since it was announced ten months ago, some even accusing it of being anti-Bulgarian. Film’s director, Darko Mitrevski denies this, asking how someone can judge before even seeing the film.

Economic experts say that it would be a miracle if the country avoids officially entering a recession. After the negative growth of minus 1,4 percent in the first quarter this year, the data from the second quarter, to be announced by the State Statistical Office soon, should show whether the country will enter recession by having two in a row negative quarters. Experts say that all points to a conclusion that the negative trend will continue.

Balkan Insight has not verified the reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
