“The Smith” is a non-verbal short film based on the Brothers Grimm. The narrative peeks into a world invisible to the human eye. A skilled smith is tempted to sell his soul by the forces of evil in exchange for endless wealth.

The bargain states that the devil will come to him in three years, hoping that by then the smith will have become completely drunk and will no longer have any strength to fight him. Alas, the devil is in for surprise!

Desislava Chuturkova graduated from National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts (NATFA) and after that she specialized in Atlantic Acting School in New York. She played in the biggest theatres in Bulgaria and from 2010 she is an assistant professor in NATFA.

Desislava started her film career as an actress in several short films, Italian TV-series and main roles in “The Geracks” (2008) and “Inches from the Ground” (2016). “The Smith” is her directorial debut.
