SHORT FILM: ‘Hello There’ by Diana Mincheva-Jordanova

She had an appetite for being social, being liked, being followed. He was having friends, playing games, sharing stories. And they were very happy living online.

But suddenly it becomes official: “Stay at home!” COVID-19 has affected 210 countries around the world. And all the people stayed at home. Their offline life has moved online. 

Hello There is a story about a flight from Sofia, Bulgaria to Munich, Germany. At the start of 2020, this flight would take about an hour. Now, with no flights, you’d have to swim for days to reach a shore. But does that mean that you shouldn’t fall in love with a stranger?

Diana Mincheva-Jordanova is a film director based in Sofia, Bulgaria. She has several short films and her commercial portfolio includes jobs for Unicef, Vienna Insurance Group and the Bulgarian Tourism Board.
